The special Curriculum Day on 29th June will feature a host of interactive activities to inspire girls with their future careers across Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
The cost is £12.50 per pupil for a full day at the museum on Wednesday 29th June, running from 10am - 2pm, plus the Museum’s Travel Support Scheme with the support of Arts Council England is also available to help cover schools’ transport costs.
Open to all girls from Years 8 to 10 at the museum in Gaydon, Warwickshire, the day will begin with a keynote presentation and Q&A with Louise Reynolds, vehicle line director at Jaguar Land Rover.
Louise will share her story as a woman in STEM and her route into her senior role at one of the UK’s biggest producers of luxury and sport utility vehicles.
Pupils will then take an interactive tour of the collection to discover the female pioneers in motoring history, race the remote controlled Jaguar D-types around the special track and try out some hands-on science activities with the STEM Ambassadors from MoD Kineton.
The day will culminate with a special presentation from members of the all-female driver line-up of Laser Tools GB4 Racing team.
Claire Broader from the museum’s learning and engagement team said: “We are delighted to be hosting our Girls in STEM Curriculum Day which we hope will inspire female scientists and engineers of the future with an exciting day of immersive and interactive learning in an unique setting, surrounded by our amazing collection of historic British cars.”
To continue their learning back at school, students will also receive a goody bag containing two STEM activities including a salt powered car kit.
