STEM Challenge Day
Primary school students are invited into a world of innovation and creativity with a series of captivating activities, starting with the STEM Challenge - a full-day, virtual workshop and competition that brings the excitement of aerospace engineering right into classrooms across the UK.
The day begins with students teaming up to design, build, and test three unique gliders or a rocket capable of launching a satellite into space. The sky's the limit as they unleash their creativity and engineering skills!
In the afternoon, the mission continues with a groundbreaking activity – The Sustainability of Aerospace. Students will envision and design the sustainable aircraft of tomorrow, crafting posters to showcase their revolutionary ideas.
All successful STEM Day Challenge applicants will be sent an exclusive invitation to stage three taking place in the Summer Term – Meet the STEM Superstars, an amazing opportunity to learn more about careers in STEM and the stars behind them!
The competition culminates as schools submit their top sustainable aircraft designs for a chance to win fabulous prizes, including £100, two LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Prime kits (worth £700), and winners will get exclusive access to the Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) in July 2024!
