Visit: iFLY Wind Workshop

Award Level SuperStar

iFLY Indoor Skydiving’s ‘Wind Workshop’ offers a unique, hands-on experience for children from Year One through to Year Six, with the emphasis on FUN! The workshops are led by Professor iFLY who helps pupils answer the question “why can the instructor stand up whilst you are flying next to them” and take them through interactive demonstrations to show the basics of how a wind tunnel works, before setting them interesting, practical, wind-based challenges that encourage time management, problem solving and working in a team.

Designed with children and accessible science in mind, we know this is a truly inspirational and comprehensive life and learning experience. The combination of our Wind Workshop and indoor skydiving allows children to experience, first-hand, the effects of force on their body, which is a fantastic, active learning experience.

Polymers are long chains of tiny particles joined together in groups, a bit like long strings of beads. Scientists at Horners use polymers to create great new products. But they need more ideas!

Every day I manage to drop a piece off my plate and onto the floor. The toast always seems to land butter-side down! I think there’s a reason.
