Transform the Classroom Experience with a Maths & Science School Trip

While mathematics might not always seem like the most imaginative subject, there are many ways to make it enriching and enjoyable for everyone by organising a maths-themed school trip.

Stepping outside the classroom into a new environment can ignite your student’s interest and engagement. The future is changing rapidly, and science and technology are transforming our social and political world. Here are some suggestions for creating an exciting trip that stimulates curiosity and engagement in young minds.

  • Aerospace Bristol features fully equipped learning spaces, with specialist facilities for schools and youth groups. We have worked with our partners from the aerospace industry to develop an inspiring and practical learning programme that explores our amazing local history and encourages pupils to develop STEM skills and discover the possibilities of careers in engineering.
  • Manchester City Stadium TourEnjoy a trip to the world-famous Etihad Stadium to explore the multitude of revenue streams that are taken in just a few hours when 53,000 fans descend to watch the big match. Students will look at specific commercial outlets and be encouraged to discuss the profit and loss of each venue and suggest ideas to make them more profitable.
  • Silverstone Museum and Racetrack offer engaging curriculum-focused workshops that are run by their learning team in a dedicated learning studio overlooking the circuit. The workshops are designed to extend pupils’ learning during their visit and have a particular focus on STEM subjects. We explore the technology, design and science of race cars and also, for older pupils, we look at possible career options within STEM and motor racing.
  • Science Museum London and Manchester Immerse yourself in our hands-on gaming experience, featuring the very best video games and consoles from the past 50 years. From Pong to Pacman and Minecraft to Mario, there’s something for everyone, whether you’re a retro games fan, a serious gamer or just want to beat your family at Mario Kart.
  • The Observatory Science Centre, Herstmonceux is where everyone can experience Spectacular Science through the medium of interactive activities.

All these trips offer workshops and learning opportunities that show examples of how maths and science are utilized in everyday life, helping to connect theoretical learning with real-world applications. Learning how to solve problems helps boost confidence and foster team-building skills and communication.

In addition to the listed options, there are many more venues and experiences available across the UK. For example, the National Space Centre in Leicester offers immersive experiences about space exploration, while Techniquest in Cardiff provides hands-on science exhibits and workshops. The Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester showcases the industrial heritage and technological advancements, offering a wide range of interactive exhibits.
