School trip to The Silverstone Experience
The project to create an educational centre for British motor sport began in 2012 with the charitable mission of bringing to the public a museum for the exhibition and preservation of artefacts, archives and collections of educational and historic value. All those involved in achieving this mission are delighted to see The Silverstone Experience open its doors in 2019.
Plan a school visit
The Silverstone Experience offers a brilliant opportunity to deliver an exciting, engaging and inspiring trip to your pupils.
School groups can explore the 4000m2 exhibition, that will take them on an exciting journey through the past, present and future of Silverstone and British motor sport. Learn about the engineering and technology that has changed the world of motor sport in our Technology Lab before exploring part of the retired circuit and see what’s racing around the track that day.
Young people can take part in one of their STEM workshops to suit all ages and abilities that link to key stages in the national curriculum and support learning outside the classroom.
Average dwell time on site is approximately 4 hours which includes exhibition entry, space for lunch, access to our outdoor track trail and viewing area, and a curriculum workshop.
Their engaging curriculum-focused workshops are led by a learning facilitator in a dedicated learning studio overlooking the live circuit.
The workshops are designed to extend pupils’ learning during their visit and have a particular focus on STEM subjects.
These will be available for all key stages from EYFS to Key Stage 5 including a Forces and Motion workshop for Key Stage 3 and will be supported by resources for you to use back at school.
