Come to Silverstone for a tour of the circuit, followed by a hands-on workshop on forces and motion with a motorsport theme.
Silverstone Circuit is the home of British motor racing. We’ll have a 2 hour guided “behind the scenes” tour of the circuit. We will be using a coach to tour because of the size and nature of the site. However, we will get off the coach at certain points to get a closer look at the legendary sites around the circuit including standing on the podium. We’ll also learn about the evolution of the venue from the home of an order of Benedictine Monks to a farm, a WWII airfield and a modern day race circuit.
We’ll have a break for lunch and then we will have a hands-on workshop in the afternoon where the students can experiment with theories of forces and motion with a motorsport theme.
Places are strictly limited and will first be offered to those who took part in the poll.
Thereafter places will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis.
The price is £20.75 (per person – child, adult, human being!) (This price may reduce slightly – in which case, you will receive a refund)
(You may pay via personal PayPal transfer to events [at] educationista.com replace the [at] with @ and close up the spaces)
(This is wheelchair accessible – apart from getting on/off the coach and the podium)
(NB – you still have to make your own way to/from Silverstone)
This is aimed at KS3 (11yr+) mature younger children may also attend. However, to register your interest for a possible KS2 workshop, please do so at: www.educationista.com/article/silverstone-poll
This event is fully booked.
