The Isle of Wight is home to some of the UK's leading technology, electronics and aerospace employers. The Island has a long history of technological innovation and manufacture, from rockets to RADAR, hovercraft to flying boats, aircraft parts to wind turbines, and many more. A highly skilled workforce is required to service these employers, and we are delighted to work in conjunction with Isle of Wight College who operate one of the country's most advanced and impressive STEM laboratory facilities designed for primary, secondary and tertiary students.
Students can pick and choose from a range of "taster" activities or focus on a specific area, such as CAD, Robotics, CNC machining, 3D printing and much more. All skills that 21st Century employers are seeking, and we can make this unique facility available to you as part of your Isle of Wight school trip.
STEM is also essential to the running of many Isle of Wight tourism businesses, from our world famous steam railway to less obvious implementations such as rides and animatronics at our theme parks. Education Destination will help students appreciate and understand how STEM affects the world around them, and our resources communicate key principles through engaging and easy-to-understand activities at lots of venues around the Island.
You may utilise any of our pre-visit, on-site or post-visit resources once you book your Isle of Wight school trip via Education Destination.
