With restrictions changing everyday, we realise that booking a trip to the REME Museum for your class or club may be off the table.

It’s not all bad news though: we can come to you! We’re now offering COVID-safe outreach sessions and digital workshops, delivered via Zoom, Skype or Teams.

It’s not quite the same as a day out, but our experienced Education Officer can bring World War Two history and STEM ideas to life with real historic artefacts and engineering know-how.

Self-Powered Vehicle Challenge

Available as an outreach session only, this workshop lasts 2.5 hours and is designed for Key Stage 2 learners to build STEM skills.

First, we’ll explore who REME are and what they do in the British Army. Then we’ll move onto a writing task, focused on teamwork and logical planning: key attributes of the modern soldier. Finally we’ll get stuck into making a rubber band powered vehicle in small groups. We’ll bring the kit!

REME in World War Two

Delivered in-class or via the home learning platform of your choice, this session takes 2.5 hours and can be tailored for Key Stages 1, 2 and 3.

After we’ve found out about REME, we’ll have a look at some real letters, sent by a soldier in World War Two. If we’re coming to you we’ve also got some historic artefacts for your group to handle. Together, we’ll use these items to talk about what wartime was like for soldiers and those on the home front.

Make a Booking

Contact us to find out more and get your outreach session in the diary. Our sessions follow a standard lesson plan but we’re more than happy to adapt to you needs.

For sessions in your classroom, we charge £5 per attendee. Book a digital session for only £30 for your whole group.

All pupils receive a voucher offering free entry to the REME Museum for a year after their workshop.
