Expand your horizons at Arcelormittal Orbit

Written by: Elmtree Press

We would like to invite you and your students to experience new perspectives at Britain’s tallest sculpture – the ArcelorMittal Orbit.

The distinctive red looping structure is the icon of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Standing taller than the Statue of Liberty, it gives visitors breathtaking views over the landmark 2012 sporting venues and 20 miles into the distance.

The ArcelorMittal Orbit was fashioned from 2000 tonnes of steel, and was created by sculptor Sir Anish Kapoor, and designer Cecil Balmond, two of the most influential artists of their generation. The structure stands in the south of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London’s beautiful new open space in creation, with meadows, wetlands and waterways.

 Educational visits to the ArcelorMittal Orbit are supported by a range of free teaching resources, which can be used both on-site and back at the classroom. These cover key stages 1-3 in cross-curricular subjects covering science, geography, art & design and maths.
