Air Power Science
Skill Supply staff have had a keen interest on how and why things fly for decades, ever since our Director Dom was an RAF Air Cadet, anything that can fly has been captivating. Did you know he even flew solo before he could drive a car?!
With children conducting experiments where things fly or move based on air power is super engaging, drives learners to discover things for themselves and develop a desire to learn about the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). From rockets, to aerofoils and wings to airships and air-powered vehicles, adding something new to your science curriculum couldn’t be easier.
We use our workshops to develop a desire to learn about the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) and how it is used in everyday life. Alongside this we know that by taking part in STEM activities students develop other skills such as team working, communication, problem-solving, resilience and much more.
Our workshops are versatile, engaging and all link the curriculum and fulfil OFSTED criteria. Choose from Airships, Rockets, Flying with Style or Air Powered Vehicles
Working Scientifically. Learning through first hand practical experiments. Comparative and fair testing. Use equipment to perform simple tests, make observations, collect data and take accurate measurements.
Science Topics. The effects of forces, gravity mass and weight. Learn about real scientists and their ideas.
Maths. Measure and record lengths and heights, mass/weight, volume and time. Use appropriate units.
D & T. Evaluation of past and present D & T,test their ideas and products.
Literacy. Working in groups,use spoken, language for speculating, hypothesising, imagining and exploring ideas. Using correct technical languageTo book this activity, please contact:
