Discover opportunities for STEM learning at the Aviation Heritage Museum!

STEM – Science, technology, engineering and mathematics is an incredibly important learning area for children of all ages. It provides numerous pathways for hobbies, study and future career opportunities.

The all-new Young Aviators Area features exciting simulator and virtual reality experiences, launched specifically for young people, with a focus on STEM learning. New additions are gradually being added, making it an excellent feature to rediscover on each visit!

You can also view a jet and piston engine on display, with cutaways allowing visitors to see inside the machinery and discover how it operates.

The Young Aviators Area also features a cinema where visitors of all ages can understand the basics of flight, through gliders, powered aircraft and helicopters, gaining further appreciation as to the inner workings of aviation engines.

In total, the Area will feature eight interactive displays, with a number of simulators and virtual reality, all which relate to STEM learning outcomes and will spark the interest of young (and not so young) visitors.

Enthusiastic and experienced Museum volunteers are ready and excited to share these learning opportunities and foster an interest in the STEM learning space.

There are also a number of great resources online, which can provide STEM activity ideas for home. Most of them are so fun, your children won’t even realise they are learning!

Some activity ideas are as follows:
