Please note: Outreach Workshops only - We visit your school! We can visit schools in All UK Regions

Hyett Education are specialists in STEM and our mission is to ignite a passion for STEM subjects. We are Royal Air Force STEM Education Partners and deliver STEM workshops all over the UK on their behalf.

Our lead consultant, Antony S Hyett, is a qualified teacher and Computing specialist that has worked at a local authority as an Education Technology Consultant with a track record of delivering ICT Mark status.

Our STEM lead, Mark Guy, is a semi-retired aeronautical chief engineer responsible for designing the actuation systems you'll find on most common commercial and military aircraft.

We promise incredibly exciting, educational workshops that are great value for money.

Why book Hyett Education for educational workshops into your school?

We have delivered STEM/Computing workshops to thousands of children across the UK and have had glowing reviews from children and teachers after every single one of them. We're also trusted by the Royal Air Force to deliver educational STEM programmes across the UK on their behalf and have earned the status of RAF STEM Education Partners.

Our session instructor is a Computing teacher and professional commercial drone pilot licensed by the Civil Aviation Authority and is suitably equipped to teach your students about the principles of flight. Your students will receive expert tuition in either block or Swift programming and they's use these skills to code their drones to navigate their way through an indoor obstacle course and pick up and drop off precious cargo.

Which Curriculum Subjects do you cater for?

green tick Computing

Curriculum topics available: Robotics, Coding, Information and Communications Technology, Algorythms and data.

Students will learn to code using block programming or Swift coding language (used to develop apps on iPhone and iPad). They'll provide algorithmic instructions to their drone to make it take-off, land, do flips and somersaults, as well as navigate different altitudes and distances to make its way safely around a course.

green tick Physics

Curriculum topics available: Forces and magnets, Electricity and circuits, Forces.

In learning about the principles of flight, students will develop an understanding of how physics plays its part in enabling drones and other aircraft to take flight. They'll then get to see and feel some of these principles in action whilst flying their drones.

green tick Design Technology

Curriculum topics available: Mechanics and engineering.

As part of the workshop students will learn about the principles of flight, and will begin to understand how the design of aircraft enables them to take to the skies.

What activities are available during group visits?

Students will receive a drone flight safety briefing from a CAA approved pilot and learn about the principles of flight and science behind it. Depending on the session length, students may have an opportunity to build a hydraulics actuation system to move the wings of an aircraft cross-section.

Students will be taught how to connect to their drone and how to program it to carry out a variety of tasks. Once they have learnt the basics and followed instructional coding guidance, they'll need to apply their learning to fly through an indoor obstacle course and accurately drop-off and pick-up cargo.

Do you offer on-site classroom facilities?

trip icon

No, we come to you and will require a large indoor space to setup our drone obstacle course.

Is there first aid on site?

trip icon

We hold current Level 3 Paediatric Emergency First Aid qualifications and will be on hand to provide assistance, if required.

Anything else?

We absolutely guarantee you will be thrilled with the workshops we deliver at your school. But don't just take our word for it, here's a quote from a recent STEMbotics and STEMgineers event we delivered at a school in Lincolnshire :

"I just wanted to say a sincere thank you to you and your team, from everyone at Walton who was involved in your fantastic STEM day. I can confidently say the feedback has been nothing but positive, especially from the students. Having seen many of these events over time, this is the first where I have seen 100% engagement and enthusiasm from all involved – they had a great time! Jo, our Head of Science, who is quite hard to impress, stated it was the best STEM event she had ever been involved with.

Thanks for giving up your time and we look forward to welcoming you back to Walton in the near future.

Best wishes

Will Teece
Head of School
Walton Academy"
