Airship Dreams: School Resources
Our Airship Dreams: Escaping Gravity project provides a great way for schools to link local, social history to the curriculum across a range of STEAM subjects.
We have been working closely with Shortstown Primary School to develop a set of resources that are FREE for schools to use. We’ve called this programme the Airship Dreamers Club.
The resources can be used to support curriculum teaching, just for fun, or can be shared with parents for them to engage with their children at home.
