Sensational Science Shows
Monday 12th to Friday 16th February,
11am, 12:30pm and 2:30pm
An event made possible by the museum’s National STEM program, co-sponsored by Serco, Newton and Airbus, the Explorer Dome team are coming to the Fleet Air Arm Museum for some sensational science. These demonstrations, while fun and suitable for all the family, will help younger visitors get to grips with important scientific principles, even if they’re not to be tried at home. These shows are free with a valid museum ticket.
Barracuda Live: The Big Rebuild
Once visitors have learnt all about the flashy side of science, they can get to grips with the major engineering project that is Barracuda Live. Not a single Fairey Barracuda exists in the world today, so piece by piece, a passionate team of staff and volunteers at the museum has been given MOD permission to gather scattered parts from wreck sites. It is a long-term project which will employ a delicate balance of reclaimed original parts and newly manufactured components. Barracuda Live is free with a valid ticket to the museum.
