PEDAGOGICAL WORKSHOPS AT THE AEROSCOPIA MUSEUM
In order to complete the offer of guided tours of the museum for school audiences (from kindergarten to high school), by transmitting and sharing aeronautical scientific culture, the aeroscopia museum is expanding its offer by developing its three workshop rooms in the Farm of Pinot.
Discover our educational workshops for school children designed in partnership with the Academy of Toulouse and led by the museum's guide-mediators, in order to make young audiences aware of history, science and technology. Young people will be able, from kindergarten, to experience science on the background of aeronautics: role-playing; travel with Scopi, the museum mascot; air stories; discovery of aeronautical materials; aerodynamics; supersonic flight ...

Immediate take off! (1H) / From the small nursery section to the CP class
Small travelers discover how to prepare for a plane trip: prepare their travel documents, choose their destination, pack their bags according to the weather. The workshop then takes place in the form of a role play in which the students experience the course of the trip and discover the associated trades and the different parts of the plane. Everyone is given a role so that the start is made on time!
Does the air exist ?! (1H) / Classes of CP, CE1 and CE2
What surrounds us ... nothing? Or air?
Scopi the museum mascot needs help to understand how to fly. After some discussions with the mediator, the students question themselves and then experience the existence of air in a simple and fun way through small experiments. This preamble to the scientific process continues around the essential use of air to fly and the importance of the shape of flying objects. Will Scopi have the answer to his question?
Planes and materials ... a long history! (1H) / Classes of CM1, CM2 and 6th
A time machine, a mad scientist, a dream ... FLY!
The students have a mission: to reposition planes in their era and to match the corresponding materials. Using a timeline, the workshop leads students to identify the link between plane, era and materials and then understand their evolution. After a first part essentially linked to the historical context, the students experience the properties of certain materials used in aeronautical construction.
To your planes, ready, write! (1:30) / 5th, 4th and 3rd classes
Awareness of documentary research through comics.
Objective for the students: complete a comic strip featuring two emblematic planes from the aeroscopia collection. To do so, students are introduced to documentary research and are led to visit the museum's resource center. Through research and writing in small groups, the students learn a method of searching for information and tackle two major events in the history of aeronautics.
Supersonic challenge (1:30) / Classes High School
When the first supersonic aircraft flew 70 years ago, some believed that the future of air transport was clear. But today, no more supersonic airliners are in service in the world. This workshop will allow students to understand the nature of the speed of sound, as well as the technical, economic and ecological issues related to exceeding this speed. Would your students dare to take up the challenge?
