Pop-Up Newton Rooms – coming to a location near you!
A key component of the Newton expansion is our innovative Pop-Up Newton Room, a portable package of flight simulator panels and educational materials used to create a temporary Newton Room in virtually any suitable space.
FIRST Scandinavia has partnered with The Boeing Company
to expand its successful Newton Room concept from Norway to 9 additional countries including the Netherlands, Germany, Poland, France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, the United Kingdom, and Sweden. A key component of the Newton expansion is our innovative Pop-Up Newton Room, a portable package of flight simulator panels and educational materials used to create a temporary Newton Room in virtually any suitable space.
The Pop-Up Newton Rooms are made up of 2 expandable containers specially designed to fit on a ship, train, or truck. Needing only a power and water source, they can be set up anywhere in the world. Each container expands to 35m2, meaning that each Pop-Up Newton Room provides 70m2 of high-quality and inspiring STEM education space.
The Pop-Up Newton Rooms provide a state-of-the-art environment for diverse communities that may not have access to expensive and modern science equipment, and expose visitors to the exciting world of flight. Groups of local students aged 8 to 18 will have the opportunity to learn from a teacher who is specially trained in the Newton concept
and learn how simple mathematical principles pertain to aviation. At the end of the day, students get to fly their own flight plans in bespoke panel flight simulators. Other modules will be on offer which teach the students about sustainable biofuels as well as robotics and coding.
The ultimate goal of the Pop-Up Newton Room is to demonstrate an exciting and quality-assured method of STEM education to communities around Europe. We work with local schools and government authorities to provide special teacher training opportunities and to ensure that we adapt our programmes in a logical and sustainable way for each community. By working together we can inspire the next generation with the Newton concept!
We are pleased to announce that the containers will be in the Netherlands, Poland, Germany, and Spain in 2019. Stay tuned to our Facebook
