KS2 Glider Challenge
The RAF Museum are proud to host the KS2 Glider Challenge 2022. This year, we are hosting two events – a challenge onsite at the Museum and an online virtual challenge for those schools that cannot visit us. Sponsored by the RAF Youth and STEM Team, we are inviting schools to enter teams into either event.
- KS2 Glider Challenge held at RAF Museum Midlands, Shropshire on Tuesday 14 June 2022
- Virtual KS2 Glider Challenge live streamed competition on Wednesday 29 June 2022
All schools involved are sent a FREE resource pack which includes a 4-week lesson plan to be covered in lessons prior to the event – this lesson plan can be adapted in any which way to suit your school needs.
The competition will include a research and design element, as well as a poster and presentation pitch which outlines why the team has chosen their glider design and why they think it should win. Prizes will be awarded across both events for the winners of each category. Students that successfully complete all elements of the challenge will also receive a British Science Association CREST Discovery Award!
