INTRODUCING … THE 1:3 SCALE HAWKER HURRICANE
The star of the show is our wonderfully detailed and highly realistic Hawker Hurricane.
This is our key to delivering engaging, interactive, educational programmes, which focus on STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths – and history. At Sci-Hi Education, we believe in ‘learning by doing’. And therein lies the beauty of this model. It comes apart! Think of it as a cross between an Airfix and a Meccano set, except larger than an estate car! With over 50 different components to construct, there is a multitude of stories we can tell.
People participation is key. We want the audience to put it back together, seeing how the different parts work and how they fit together. The skin of the fuselage lifts off, giving a unique insight into the intricate engineering of this beautiful, powerful and sturdy aircraft. This stunning replica model is perfection, down to the last nut and bolt. It is a unique tool that can benefit audiences from primary to secondary and beyond. It is key to delivering STEM subjects, giving students an exciting insight into why STEM is so exciting. Sci-Hi Education tailors all its programmes to hit school curriculum targets.
