Motor museum launches new STEM education programme

Date Posted: 12/05/2014

The Heritage Motor Centre in Gaydon, Warwickshire has launched a new programme of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) education sessions suitable for Key Stages 2 to 4.

The museum has previously focused mainly on providing programmes based upon the history of the British motor industry.

The new programmes have been designed by University of Wolverhampton graduate David Wilkinson – employed by the Museum via the KEEN (Knowledge Exchange & Enterprise Network) programme.

The STEM sessions have been designed to allow children on a school visit to learn in a hands-on way, combining guided activities in the education room with time spent exploring the museums extensive collection.

Tim Bryan, head of collections and interpretation, stated: “Our new STEM education sessions are just one step in our quest to develop our learning programmes and increase the quality and quantity of education taking place at the museum, supporting our primary status as an educational charity.”
