Lunch is 45 mins with two 20 minute breaks morning and afternoon.
All classes use our sophisticated custom made electronic hardware and software launch platforms which are wirelessly controlled and speak! Want to code and record your "own voice" countdown? No problem!
Children will need lunch, snacks and drinks for the whole day and have suitable outdoor clothing and footwear for the launch.
No experience of coding or flight control necessary. We will teach everything!
If we are experience weather prohibiting field launch, the group will be invited to another launch event for free.
Family and friends are all welcome for final field launch viewing by strict prior arrangement only.
What you will learn at the Day Classes
Progression through the stages means utilising more powerful rockets with heavier payloads along with increasing challenges in coding, engineering and science.
Use software which “real” engineers use to code on our custom built wireless electronic hardware.
Coding is the fourth literacy and what better way to engage children with computational thinking whilst harnessing their creativity in this incredible and exciting subject matter.
Development of "real" connections between theory and hands-on applications in science, technology, engineering and maths.
Design, conduct and report experimental investigations in relation to Newton’s laws, potential and kinetic energy.
Bringing together STEM in an incredibly engaging and novel way, your child will understand what drives stability and flight dynamics.
Develop spatial relations and conceptual thinking skills.
Learn to present expertise and ideas developed in front of class.
Enhancement of self-image through successful accomplishments.
Spark critical thinking skills, better research and observational techniques.
Development of greater awareness for safety and attention to detail.
Above all: a memorable and positive experience during the learning process throughout the three days.
(The closest we will get to launching a human will be a Jelly Baby or two!)
