Our education programme is very much about honouring the past… creating an atmosphere of learning and discovery to explore the history of Vulcan XH558, its extraordinarily advanced British design and technology, and its importance in the context of The Cold War. But, most importantly, it’s about looking forward - engaging, enriching and… inspiring the future with much emphasis on science, engineering, design, technology and innovation.
