Fly to the Line: UK primary Schools Glider Challenge

ACT NOW! Primary schools can take part in the UK primary Schools Glider Challenge in partnership with RAF Museum Cosford.

The Glider Challenge offers primary schools a unique opportunity to begin to engage students in years 4 and 5 (Scotland P5 & P6) with STEM subjects.

The competition is sponsored by the RAF Museum Cosford & The Learning Partnership to engage as many young people as possible with an authentic Science and Engineering challenge. The competition and supporting curriculum resources are designed to help equip students with the skills, knowledge and experience that they will need to embrace and tackle the global opportunities and challenges of tomorrow.

The project is fully resourced with lesson plans, printables and activity guides made available on the Dendrite STEM Education Community.

The entry fee for each class of students in a primary school is £25.00 + VAT.

For this entry fee the school will receive;
– 1 pack of 10 x A3 5mm biodegradeable foam sheets delivered to the school,
– Teaching materials to support the competition,
– A school STEM collaboration area on Dendrite.me
– Entry for 1 team (of up to 4 students) from the registered class for the regional finals in 2018.

Note: A large school can register more than one class to take a team from each to regional finals.
