Enrichment Day - East Midlands Airport Trip

On the December Enrichment Day, 7Elm students spend the day in the maths department. The focus of the day was split between Maths and Lifeskills with students spending half of the day at East Midlands Airport and the other half in their maths classes back at school.

During the visit, students were given a tour of the airport, completed some work on airport security and put together some role plays of a wide variety of scenarios that occur on a daily basis for airport staff.

Back at school students completed a range of activities designed to highlight the many uses of Maths in the real world. These activities included:

- Creating an airline company logo that could be scaled up or down to different sizes

- Researching some of the many jobs that help keep the airport running smoothly, as well as their skill and qualification requirements.

- Looking at the different tasks involved in preparing an aeroplane before it's next flight and finding the minimum time required for them all

- Starting their own paper aeroplane production company which focussed on making profit and the importance of quality control.

 

Students seemed to really enjoy the whole day and commented on how even though they had been to the airport before, they didn't think about all of the different careers available there, many of which are often completed behind the scenes. Students also noted that they didn't realise how much Maths and Lifeskills are involved in the day to day running of an airport.   

 Students in 7ASH will have chance to visit the Airport later in the year.
