Edutainment at Silverstone
STEAM experiences at the British Grand Prix
Event: British Grand Prix
Experiences: Coding, Robotics, 3D Printing & LEGO Education Freewheeler
Location: Silverstone Family Zone
After being locked out the previous year due to Covid restrictions, a crowd 140,000 strong returned to Silverstone for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone in the summer of 2021 and his time CreativeHUT were on hand to provide edutainment for the whole family.
The F1 can be a long day for young fans waiting to catch a glimpse of their favourite drivers, so the challenge was on to provide fun, yet enriching STEAM experiences between the action taking place on the track.
“There was just so much to keep the children entertained! Big thumbs up from our family.”
The CreativeHUT section of the fan zone included everything needed to keep the young motorsport enthusiast happy from LEGO® racing cars, robotics & coding experiences, 3D printing and a giant interactive LEGO® build of the Stig built by hundreds of children.
It wasn’t just the kids who enjoyed themselves as many parents were transformed back to their childhoods as they enthusiastically built and tested the LEGO® cars and let their competitive sides come out when there were prizes to be won! With such a well rounded program of activities for the whole family it was no surprise that the stands were crowded and quite often the same faces returned day after day.
STEAM education and the F1 made for a fantastic combination as it was great to see bright young minds build confidence in coding & robotics and inspired to become the motorsport engineers of the future. Edutainment experiences from CreativeHUT deliver plenty of fun, smiles and laughter while being centred around learning through play and the development of essential 21st century skills such as problem solving and critical thinking.
CreativeHUT are able to tailor Edutainment experiences for all manner of events, so if you would like to discuss one of our packages, don’t hesitate to get in touch today!
