Brooklands Museum is packed with vehicles and aircraft which prompt scientific questions. There’s plenty of scope for your KS3 and KS4 students to learn how engineers and scientists grappled with some of the big scientific ideas behind aircraft, buses and cars, modifying their approach and learning from their mistakes. If you would like to book a self-guided visit, without any additional workshops or guided tours, your group will be charged a General Admission fee of £5.00 per head for pupils under 16, and £8.00 per head for pupils 16 and over. Workshops and guided tours are an additional cost per pupil.

Construct a model car for the future powered by electricity! Join us to find out what happens when you use the power of a propeller to provide the thrust for your electric car. In this learning-by-doing workshop, students construct a car to a budget, creating a circuit to power their car’s propeller. Working in groups there’s plenty of opportunity to develop skills of collaboration and problem solving, and to test their ideas out on the historic racing track at Brooklands.

The CREST Awards scheme is the British Science Association’s (BSA) flagship programme for young people, providing science enrichment activities to inspire and engage 5-to-19-year-olds.
Here at Brooklands, we offer a bronze accredited CREST award that sees students design and build aerodynamic shells, mounted onto RC cars to be raced down our historical finishing straight. This project uses inspiration inspiration from designs of the past at Brooklands to inspire students’ design.
