WW1 AHT Simulator Hire/STEM Day Visits

2024 Visit Programme

The day was amazing! Great range of activities: WW1 flight simulator, Planes quiz and WW1 poetry. Kids loved the simulator, learnt so much from the quiz and were totally immersed in the idea that their poems could be dropped over the Somme. It fitted in perfectly with our current topic which has been about what our local community did during the Great War and how they remember those who fought in the war. Students were totally engaged at all times. VR was amazing – particularly for those who have never tried it before. Quiz was fascinating. The Poetry provoked much conversation and produced some amazing, emotive work. Students were VERY excited by it and the Day rounded off their WW1 topic beautifully

I just wanted to say how wonderful your visit was. The children immensely enjoyed all of the activities – my girls in particular were extremely taken with being able to ‘fly’ and you have opened their eyes to a whole new world of possibilities, some of my class would never have had this experience without your visit and your wonderful, endlessly patient volunteers who made their day memorable – an absolute fount of knowledge to which my class would not have ever had access otherwise. All of the activities were informative, valuable experiences and actively engaging. I cannot thank everyone enough for making this visit a truly memorable occasion. I would love to be able to book for next year.

There are prizes for the best poems, and for the best drawings from the Quiz that capture the essence of the war in the air in WW1. Any poems written sent to the Trust before 15th Jun 2024 will be flown to Northern France in our Nieuport 17 and dropped at the Commemorations for the Battle of the Somme and elsewhere in N France on 1 July 2024. We plan to do the same next year et seq. We can take a maximum of 80 pupils per day. For booking purposes, the timeline displays the available visit dates on a rolling 12-month basis.
