iFLY Partners


iFly Indoor Skydiving and Manchester Tutors have recently partnered to provide a fun, educational experience that brings physics and forces to life!

In collaboration with Manchester Tutors, iFLY delivers school packages for groups of primary and secondary school students, giving them the opportunity to take flight themselves whilst also learning about science (forces, materials and energy) in a uniquely, fun and engaging way.

iFly Indoor Skydiving Centre, Manchester is situated in the heart of Trafford City and is home to the first 14ft (4.3m) diameter iFLY indoor skydiving wind tunnel to be built in the UK.

How does it work?

Our passionate Science tutors deliver world-class STEM workshops, created by Fun Science, as part of these school packages that includes:

  • Indoor skydiving for every student
  • An interactive lesson that links with the national curriculum

Lessons are run by our trained, enthusiastic tutors who are passionate about science and about encouraging students to engage with the subject. Within the lesson, students get to learn about the science behind indoor skydiving before having a go at the experience themselves!

The secondary science lesson covers:

  • Air Resistance
  • Forces (push and pull)
  • Energy (types and transfers)

The primary science lesson covers:

  • Air Resistance
  • Materials
  • Gravity

Both include a practical, hands-on element where students get to build and test their assumptions and hypotheses in a fun, interactive and slightly competitive way!

About the Tutors

Rob

Hi! I have been teaching and tutoring Mathematics and Physics (Primary to A-Level) for 15 years. I have a background prior to teaching in engineering, including some aerodynamics as part of my work in the wind turbine sector. I am also a theatre-maker and have done a lot of work with schools, producing science plays, intended to engage schoolchildren, primary and secondary, in the sciences. I am currently working on a project for Singapore Science Centre, supporting children’s emotional health through an understanding of science.

Hi! In addition to my experience as a private tutor both 1-2-1 and in groups in homes, a school and academy in Manchester, I am also a member of Women in STEM and a UoM outreach program for females in STEM and science for schools. I am passionate about making science and math accessible and interesting for younger students. I am also a huge food lover and enjoy cooking (and eating).

I am currently studying for a postgraduate degree at the University of Manchester in Nuclear Physics having completed my undergraduate in Physics in June 2018. This includes research projects, for example I have just recently completed a placement with the University of Vienna running safety experiments on their nuclear reactor and a combination of taught modules.
