Aer0camp is ‘Aeroschool on wheels’ for ages 11-14
Join Shuttleworth for their inaugural event at Old Warden on Wednesday 28th, Thursday 29th and Friday 30th July where we shall be partnering with Time & Space Learning Community to provide a unique blend of kinaesthetic and interactive learning for budding engineers and lovers of things with wings and wheels.
Places are limited to 20 at our 2021 event as we explore this unique context with the ever present possibility of lockdowns. Our tour bus has two large awnings to maximise on appropriate distancing for this truly educational event. However we are subject to National Laws and guidance and the Museum’s own policies.
To make full access of Shuttlesworth’s rich collection of working historical machines we bring our state of the art CAD CAM facility and aspects of our Aer0school curriculum. For this event this will facilitate rapid making of model planes based on exhibits in the collection. Participants will be able to create multiple versions of their designs to iteratively test, refine and compete in various challenges. We shall be using computers, a Laser Cutter, manual cutting tools and cool melt glue guns with appropriate supervision. Participants will test their flying machines in the open air in a sheltered spot so please be prepared for the weather and bring a packed lunch!! We have a variety of lunchtime activities including flight simulators and our own STEM board games.
