East Midlands Airport Environment

Produced by Innovate Educate, these resources look at how East Midlands Airport is tackling its environmental responsibilities. The activities allow students to see how an activie airport monitors and limits its impact on the environment. This includes looking at the monitoring of aircraft noise, air quality and the steps being taken to develop renewable energy on the site.

Activities in this collection also include a design challenge, in which students must use passenger data to produce a design for a new airport terminal, and a mathematics challenge that looks at flight planning and navigation.

These activities are part of a web-based resource that includes related video interviews with airport employees. The full web site can be found at: www.ieltd.co.uk/ema/
