These videos build on the success of the moon content created by topic experts from our Space team in collaboration with the European Space Agency which has reached thousands of students, teachers and science centres around the world.
They were created by Airbus subject matter experts in Commercial Aircraft and Helicopters, who helped to explain the ideas in a way that kids could understand.
The videos complement the Foundation’s current Flying Challenge and Little Engineer youth development programmes that are bringing science, technology, engineering and maths-based subjects and careers to life for a new generation. The content brings theoretical concepts to life in an engaging and intriguing way. Each animation leaves the viewer with a STEM (science, technology, engineering or maths) topic to explore, whether offline or via the embedded 3D design software tools – Tinkercad and Fusion 360.
Thanks to the support of Airbus volunteers in developing inspiring content, the Airbus Foundation Discovery Space platform has been receiving great feedback from partners, parents, teachers and most importantly, from the students themselves.
The content also underlines Airbus’ wider commitment to supporting goal number four of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, which targets quality education for all.
