'Fun Fliers' -an activity for all ages which involves making and flying aircraft to land on a specified target, learning a little about aerodynamics in the process.

"Project Launch Pad"

for Key Stage 2 (aged 7-11) pupils, to find out about what engineers do and take part in various engineering related activities, including building a rocket.
