Education Roadshow



Early in March 2016, the BAE Systems Education Roadshow launched in a London school in front of over 150 excited Year 8 pupils. This year, the Education Roadshow will visit over 420 schools across Britain and we expect over 90,000 young people in Years 6, 7 and 8 to join in the fun.

In a unique partnership between BAE Systems, the RAF and the Royal Navy, the roadshow aims to stimulate young people about the need for scientists and engineers in the future. Referencing KS2 and KS3 physics, the roadshow demonstrates how the physics that they are studying in the classroom, translates into real- life jobs.

The subject of this years Roadshow focusses on the science of waves - highlighting three key forms - sound, light and water.

At the launch, Vlogger Charlie McDonnell ( famous for his YouTube channel Charlieiscoollike ) entertained the audience by participating in the lively and engaging science presentation, displaying his own natural enthusiasm for science and technology.

The roadshow is now in its 11th year and has been brought to over 365,000 young people in over 2,200 schools.
