RAF100: Aiming for Awesome

Celebrating the centennial anniversary of the Royal Air Force, Aiming for Awesome's curriculum connects STEM principles to aviation innovations. Ten resources are provided, with a student and teacher guide linked for each. These resource themes span decades of history and cover numerous topics, including aircrafts, satellites, and stealth vehicles. Additionally, they are highly interactive, with experiments scattered throughout. For example, the "Speed Record" lesson discusses the evolution of aviation from Wilbur Wright's slow cruise at 7 miles per hour to 20th century aircrafts that traveled at more than 600 miles per hour. Then, the lesson shows students how to calculate speeds and invites them to make their own vortex. The lessons are most suitable for late primary and early secondary education levels, and the teacher's guides summarize the UK curriculum standards that are satisfied for each lesson plan (though the subjects are applicable to classrooms worldwide). The Royal Academy of Engineering created these resources in 2018. They are available in English and Welsh.
