The Techno Zone® has aviation at its heart and is where the STEM subjects; Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths, are brought to life. There are lots of cutting edge exhibits and interactive activities designed to engage and inspire future engineers.
The Inspire Stage, introduced in 2022, was brought to the Techno Zone® by the RAF Charitable Trust as a medium for sharing our enthusiasm for all things STEM with engineers and scientists to inform and inspire you.
We have welcomed some incredible guests, including Tim Peake, Charles Duke, Andrew Smyth, and many more.
- "Fantastic hands on learning for the kids."
- "Amazing zone and the best offering children a variety of hands on activities for free. Lots of learning and new experiences gained."
- "I took 3 children, two aged 9 & one aged 17, the Techno Zone® was fantastic, they really enjoyed the zone."
- "AMAZING!! What a wonderful place to inspire the young folk to think about STEM careers. More of the same please!"
