NEW! Debate Space (Upper KS3 and above) 

Are robots taking over the world? Should killer drones be allowed in our skies and should we be worried about artificial intelligence? In our purpose-built Interactive Debate Space we will help your students find out about the advantages and disadvantages of the increasing use of artificial intelligence and drones.                                                                                                                             Machines with increasing levels of automation and autonomy could be used in combat. Examine the arguments for and against and argue for your teams’ point of view. When the debate is over your students will vote on what they really think about this controversial topic and then have the opportunity to find out more about how the RAF uses new technologies such as drones and cyber warfare in the RAF: First to the Future exhibition. 75 minute workshop, £90 per session

Debate Skills, Artificial Intelligence, robotics and drones

A very enjoyable trip and worthwhile. The lady running the workshop was brilliant with the children and had excellent strategies to keep them focused and engaged. I hope to return with my class again next academic year.
