Examples of student work completed in the Aerospace School.

Explore, discover, reflect, share

An artifact itself, the museum was originally used as a drill hall for the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan during WW2. At Aero Space School teachers and students begin to feel the connection to the past, explore the developments in aviation and wonder about future possibilities.

Ideas for inspiration could include:

  • Understanding how the past has influenced the present
  • Uncovering their story by discovering their heroic qualities, thinking about how their actions impact others and can make a difference
  • Becoming the bearers of the stories of the past

What They're Saying

"This week was the best week of my life. I wish the whole school year would be like this. I thought I knew quite a lot about airplanes, but I found out that I still have a lot to learn. We spent the whole week studying airplanes and helicopters. The Aerospace Museum isn't all that fancy, but it has many historical planes such as the Lancaster and great flight simulators. There is much to learn about history from pictures and videos. We were also very fortunate to meet a man (Ivan Anderson) who is a survivor of the Great Escape POW camp in Germany."
