The Silverstone Experience uses the excitement of motor sport to inspire young people to understand the possibilities Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) learning can unlock for their futures.
The Silverstone Experience will welcome school groups to the Home of British Motor Racing from June 2019 Find out more
School groups can explore the 4000m2 exhibition that will take them on an exciting journey through the past, present and future of Silverstone and British motor sport. Learn about engineering and technology that has changed the world of motor sport in our Technology Lab before exploring part of the retired circuit to see what’s racing around the track that day.
From September pupils can also take part in one of our STEM workshops to suit all ages and abilities that link to key stages in the national curriculum and support learning outside the classroom.
