Learning Events

Take-off with the RAF!

Learning activities at Cosford

Wednesday 15 November 2017 – starting at 10.00am

The Royal Air Force was formed on 1 April 1918 at a time when aviation was in its infancy. It was the world’s first independent air force. Innovation and improvement have been constant themes throughout the RAF's history, and the RAF Centenary provides us with the unique opportunity to commemorate those who have gone before us and to look forward to the next century. 

The RAF's 100th year is a time to look ahead, to inspire the next generation of young people, and to encourage them to study maths and science.  Join us for a day of STEM related activities as we approach the Centenary year of the RAF.

This fantastic STEM event is not to be missed, so register your interest now!

The RAF STEM event is suitable for students in years 6 and 7.  They will work as a team and take part in a round robin of Museum and RAF STEM activities including Coding with micro:bits and Rockets Cars. 

Participation in this event is Free of Charge, but places are limited. 

RAF Museum Junior Writers

Calling all creative writers…..we need you!

 

Tuesday 21, Wednesday 22 and Thursday 23 November 2017: 10am – 2pm

 

Free Event

 

We are inviting schools to join our Writer in Residence, Tom Palmer, for a creative writing workshop.
        
Tom is the author of the Rugby and Football Academy series which features the children of RAF families, which he researched at the museum and nearby Albrighton Primary School.

In these interactive workshops, learners will develop their creative writing and storytelling skills. Tom will talk about his Wings trilogy, explaining how he worked with the museum to write his books. Then the students will have their chance to choose museum artefacts, and work with Tom to develop their own stories.

These events are designed for year 5 or year 6.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
