STEM learning “takes off” at Magna
Welcome to Newton South Yorkshire.
At the heart of the adventure your students have a module session in England’s first Newton Room led by professionally-skilled Newton Teachers. This is combined with a visit to Magna’s newly refurbished Science Centre for a fantastic STEM learning experience.
The day includes a morning or afternoon session in our brand-new Newton Room, where students take part in one of the Newton modules. Magna currently offers Up In The Air With Numbers; students work together as scientists and engineers to carry out an air rescue mission, calculate their own flight plan, and fly a simulator in this immersive STEM workshop. This includes:
- Pre- and post-flight student activities
- Maths and physics applications
- Discussion and collaborative learning
- Flying a half-flight simulator
The Newton Adventure can be booked for students working at KS3 level.
A typical day at Magna runs from 10am to 3pm and we will provide you with a schedule for your visit. If you require different timings for the day, this can be discussed at the time of booking.
The Newton Adventure costs £135 (ex VAT). This includes; exploration of the Magna attraction and a Newton room session, for a maximum of 18 pupils.
This is the same price as a standard Magna visit and includes free admission for 2 teachers.
