School trips

Your best physics lesson ever!

We have a fabulous selection of educational experiences for pupils of all ages and abilities. We'd love to host your next science lesson so read on, get in touch and we guarantee you'll have a blast.

Wind Workshops – Primary Schools

Flying pupils + Forces in action = Fun with physics

Our interactive sessions have recently been given the CREST Superstar Award by The British Science Association and offer a unique, hands-on experience for children from Year One through to Year Six, with the emphasis on having FUN!

Designed with children and accessible science in mind, we know that this is a truly inspirational and comprehensive life and learning experience. The combination of our Wind Workshop and Indoor Skydiving allows children to experience, first-hand, the effect of force on their body, which is a fantastic, active learning experience.

Here's what some students have to say...

The workshop brought the science to life in an exciting way and was easy for the children to relate to. It was a great way of explaining what was actually happening in the wind tunnel. The whole experience was well designed and well executed, very safe and a thrilling experience. Primary School Teacher - Manchester.
It was the best trip of my life, I hope I can go back again! It was really cool making the wind powered cars. Manchester Pupil.

The Physics of Flight - Secondary Schools

Teaching students about forces, friction and air resistance can seem a bit of a drag (ho, ho), but worry no more, help is at hand! iFLY has developed ‘The Physics of Flight’, an exhilarating and inspiring way for students to get under the skin of these and other science related concepts.

Aimed at secondary school students aged 11-15 yrs, The Physics of Flight package offers a unique opportunity to apply physics theory from the classroom to the live workings of a vertical wind tunnel. The result: fresh inspiration and enthusiasm for the subject!

So... what are you waiting for? Time to throw caution to the wind (sorry, but we do like a pun or two at iFLY) and call us today, or simply complete the enquiry form below.

Here's what some students have to say...

I can't beleive I actually just did that! I would come back anytime. Age 13, Year 8, Student at Bishop Challoner School - Basingstoke.
Amazing! I definitely want to come back and learn even more soon. Age 13, Year 9, Student at Bishop Challoner School - Basingstoke.

The Icarus Flight School – in Association with The University of Southampton

Secondary Schools (including A-Level)

We are delighted to introduce The Icarus Flight School, brought to you at iFLY Indoor Skydiving, in partnership with The University of Southampton. The school is headed by Dr Angelo Grubisic - a Lecturer in Astronautics, Senior Propulsion Research Fellow, experienced skydiver and wind tunnel flyer.

Angelo is the figurehead behind The Icarus Wingsuit Project, which is aiming to break 4 world records later this year; the fastest, the farthest, the highest and the longest (duration) wingsuit skydive of all time. Oh, and Angelo himself will be the man attempting this incredible skydive.

As well as bringing those records back to the UK, another key objective of the project is to inspire UK based students of all ages to consider a career in science and engineering.

This really is an educational trip of a lifetime. Students will be taught by a leading figure in the world of physics, before experiencing freefall inside our state-of-the art wind tunnel.
