"Mistakes is good!!".
Teamwork is central to collaborative design and part of the course will provide opportunities for teamwork.
We plan that Aer0camp will be an annual eventthat builds on learning all year around as well as providing summer education. It is likely that the summer event will be a celebration of the on-going course in the locality.
For those who wish to use the event to achieve a CREST award, this event supports Bronze, (10 hours) for which all paperwork is supplied along with mentor and independent verifier. Whilst we cannot guarantee anyone a CREST award rest assured that the course fulfills the content in multiple ways and we can provide a few strategies for your consideration.
Opportunities will be provided time during the camp for filling in evidence documentation.
We are fully aware of the barriers to learning that 'paperwork' represents to some very technically able but dyslexic students. To this end our Aer0school course is designed for maximum hands-on, making with use of images and video for evidence learning. However, this will not be possible at the summer camp this year. If you wish to explore the CREST award in this way you will need to join Aero School where we can manage this data appropriately.
Despite the short notice, this event represents a unique opportunity in the context of a national treasure so don't miss out! Book NOW!
