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.
Three prototypes from the Primary Engineer's year-long 'If you were an engineer' competition - in which primary school children develop a product which is then taken to the prototype stage by a team of university students - will be at RIAT 2022, where the RAFCT-supported 2023 competition will be launched.
