The organisers of the RAF Cosford Air Show have announced details of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths Hangar which, for the first time, has been generously supported by the RAF Charitable Trust. The STEM Hangar has been one of a number of popular ground displays with its interactive and engaging exhibits.
With a number of exciting additions this year, including a stage, this year’s STEM Hangar is set to be a must-see attraction. Featured on the stage will be various local organisations including Mad Science West Midlands, who will be performing mind-blowing experiments, and the University of Wolverhampton, showcasing the higher education establishment’s efforts to promote the STEM fields.
Other high profile companies that will be attending for the first time include BAE Systems and Raytheon, both of which are bringing dedicated vehicles demonstrating the vast array of careers that are involved in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. The RAF Cosford Air Show STEM Hangar, supported by RAFCT, is pleased to be welcoming back old favourites such as the AMRC Mantra Truck and Enginuity, one of the Ironbridge Museums, which have always been popular exhibits. These exhibits, along with those from RAF Cosford, the home of RAF Engineering, mean that every aspect of technology and aeronautics is on display.
Carol Vorderman, an avid fan of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths Hangar at the RAF Cosford Air Show, said “The RAF Cosford Air Show STEM displays are second to none with some fantastic opportunities to get hands on experience of everything from jet cars to robotics!”
Amanda Butcher, Director of the RAF Charitable Trust, said “One of the objectives of the Trust is to promote air-mindedness in young people and where better to do that than in the STEM hangar at the RAF Cosford Air Show? We are delighted to be associated with this initiative and hope that visitors will be inspired by what they find.”
