Self-guided visit

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.

Guided Tour: Aeronautics & Automotive Technology

60 mins / £3.00 per pupil

Learn about the big ideas behind some of the pioneering achievements at Brooklands- aerodynamic principles, motion and forces- as students explore key stories from our Aviation and Motoring exhibitions.  Our expert guide will take you through some of the pioneering technological innovations made here at Brooklands across the twentieth century. The tour will look at the social history of aviation and commercial travel, as well as the story of the Brooklands racing circuit.

Workshop: Propeller Racers

60 Mins /£4 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.

Get a British Science Association CREST award with Brooklands Museum

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.
