Year 5 at the Dock Museum

Year 5 visited The Dock Museum today to begin their STEM based learning. This will be followed by a visit from University of Lancaster leaders and a visit to Furness College for the Engineering Fair.

They learnt about the history of aviation and then designed three paper aeroplanes. They noticed that the average flight distance increased with each new design and that modifications made an impact on flight and looping.

Many thanks to the museum for hosting us and for providing the transport. We had a great morning and Year 6 are visiting tomorrow.
