Invite for Secondary Schools to take part in Operation Vulcan

We are thrilled to be launching Operation Vulcan, which is innovative challenge for Secondary schools to get involved in the build of the new home for the Vulcan XH558 in Doncaster!

We are inviting Secondary Schools to enter teams in a competition to design a display stand and exhibition space that that showcases an original Bomb Bay Fuel Tank from the Vulcan (pictured right).

Schools and Teams will be supported by The Work-wise Foundation and Vulcan to the Sky Trust throughout the challenge and the winning design will be created by CBE+ who are currently providing a home for the Fuel Tank until The Vulcan Experience is completed.

We are asking teams of students to design a display stand to support the fuel tank and allow the public to view all aspects of the tank and learn more about it. The trust would also like to be able to use the display as a fund-raising tool by allowing individuals to have their name associated with and displayed with the fuel tank.

All final designs will be reviewed by a panel of judges from industry to produce a shortlist of six designs. These will be further judged with each team being invited to present their design and discuss their idea.

The winning team will then be invited into CBE+ to develop the design into engineering drawings under the direction of a R&D Project Manager Engineer who will then take the students through the full process of taking their sketches to a fully functioning display stand for the fuel tank being displayed in the new Vulcan Experience Hangar at Doncaster Sheffield Airport.

The closing date to book your space to take part is the 30th June 2021. If you have any questions please contact us.
