An opportunity for 10 schools to host a free RAF STEM workshop day for students in years 5-8. This is a fantastic opportunity for your school to provide an engaging STEM learning experience focused on coding, problem-solving, and space exploration themes.
This is a free opportunity for schools in York and the surrounding areas. 

There are two options the school can choose from:

Cyber Security:
Teamwork and problem-solving

Students race against the clock, working in teams to solve a number of puzzles, including code-breaking. The theme can be tailored to reflect an RAF scenario.
Artemis Rocket and Build Return to the Moon: Minecraft Education
Students will blast off to the moon to meet scientists and engineers, explore jet propulsion, and design a rocket ready for a test launch. Then we "Go for Launch" where students will use coding skills to navigate the Orion space capsule through a series of challenges on its way to the moon.
Each workshop can be adapted and delivered as either:
A 1-hour workshop for 4 classes
A half-day workshop for 2 classes
