EducationLearning opportunities for all ages
The Museum of Army Flying is a fantastic place for schools to visit and can help bring subjects such as history, science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and geography to life. With a dedicated Learning and Communities officer on hand from your initial approach through the the moment your coach drives back to school, we love to welcome school groups of all ages to the Museum.
We offer a bespoke service so please do contact us to discuss your visit and what your objectives are, but we have also included a sample itinerary under School Visits to give you an idea of how a visit may work.

NEW SCIENCE SESSIONS FOR 2017
We have brand new science sessions at the Museum of Army Flying. The Museum has recently benefited from an Arts Council England grant, which has allowed us to develop these new activities. This grant was shared with a number of museum partners in Hampshire and has also benefited from links with the Science Museum in London. Pupils attending our new sessions will have the opportunity to explore our collection of aircraft, sit on and interact with a real helicopter and try their hand at marshaling with our light up batons. These new activities are lots of fun and a great way of learning about material science and changing technology.
These sessions are perfect for Key Stage 2 pupils and are charged at just £4.00 per pupil until May 2017 and only £2.50 per pupil during science week (13–17 March 2017). They run from 10.00 - 14.00 but we can amend this timetable on request.
We can give some financial help to interested schools so if you would like to bring your pupils but find it a struggle to cover the costs please let us know as we may be able to help.
Contact our Education Officer on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to book a session.
