Explore the world of STEMon the RAF Cosford STEM Bus
Thanks to the generous support of RAF Cosford, the RAF Benevolent Fund, RAF Museum Cosford and Industry Partners, we are able to offer these festivals for FREE to schools wishing to either host or attend!
What does it involve?
The Festival is an opportunity for pupils and teachers to experience and learn about how new technologies can help enhance the teaching and learning of STEM subjects in the classroom. All Tablet Academy Learning Festivals have a strong focus on collaboration and pupils will work in their team alongside their teacher to solve a range of short 20 minute challenges. In this case of course all the challenges will be linked to aeronautical engineering.
The Festival moves at a fast pace and is hands-on from start to finish covering a range of activities designed by teachers and RAF STEM Ambassadors. The activities in most cases are easily replicable back in school* and are suitable for all pupils including gifted and talented and those from disengaged groups.
*may require investment in equipment.
