Flying into Physics

A brilliantly exciting new way of teaching physics to KS2 children through aerial flying! Scarabeus Aerial Theatre have worked with schools across London, Leicester & Kent to raise the profile of science in schools, inspiring children to enjoy science and engineering. 

Using exciting and creative aerial techniques to explore physical forces, Flying into Physics makes science approachable and accessible for a wide range of learners, including those who typically feel less inspired by science.
