Key stage 2
Visit Aerospace Bristol and take your pupils on an exciting journey through time and the sessions we offer for Key Stage 2 students
key stage 2
Our interactive workshops take place in our fully equipped learning spaces with specialist facilities, which are led by a member of the Learning Team.
key stage 2: engineers of the future
Learn about the aeroplanes in Bristol’s history that have influence the aerospace industry for over 100 years and how aviation has changed and developed throughout this time. Think how the industry might continue to progress by creating and testing pupils own designs of aeroplane of the future.
key stage 2: hands on maths
This hands on interactive sessions allows pupils to develop their mathematical problem solving, money and measure skills by taking on the role of a design engineer and working as a team to create an aircraft to present to an aerospace company.
key stage 2: supersonic sound
Develop your understanding of sound, looking at how it is made and how it travels to our ears. Learn about the sound levels produced by Concorde and then work together to create the most effective device to muffle the sound made by a jet engine.
Upper key stage 2: blast off rockets
In this practical STEM activity session, pupils explore Bristol’s rich aerospace history and the great minds involved. Then pupils will look to the future, exploring the physics behind sending humans to space before designing and testing their very own rockets - just like the engineers of Filton’s Dynamics and Space Division!
Upper key stage 2: layer it up
Explore the different materials used to make aircrafts through history, then make your own composite by layering different materials and testing its strength, and learn how scientists today are continuing to develop these materials.
Key Stage 2: Mission to Mars: Cracking coding
In this interactive workshop, pupils will put their scratch coding skills to the test by trying to complete a research mission on Mars. Once they have successfully programmed their Mars rover to collect rock samples, they will work scientifically to investigate which Martian material will be best for build the future homes on the planet.
Everything you need to know for a smooth-running day, from the moment you arrive to to completing a risk assessment.
With the centenary of World War One just around the corner, we are offering a special activity day for students in Key Stage 2, 3 or 4 to come a join us at the museum to learn about the impact Bristol had during the War. They will get to participate in a hands on workshop, creating prototypes for equipment to help save WW1 pilots’ lives. They will also get to listen to a special spotlight talk in the WW1 era of the exhibition and make a poppy that will be included in our remembrance display.
