London Luton Airport have launched their new educational initiative which will see primary school children competing to win £1000 for their school, by developing their knowledge of European countries and cities. The initiative, which is being run in partnership with Fun Kids Radio, is entitled Penguin Explorers and gives children across the Three Counties the chance to win the £1000.
Part of London Luton Airport’s ‘Inspire Young People’ programme, Penguin Explorers is the second initiative in the airport’s community support strategy and targets children between the ages of seven and 11.
Penguin Explorers offers children the chance to research and learn about the cultural heritage and geographical features of different European countries and relay this information back to their peers through a series of presentations. In addition to this, London Luton Airport will teach the children how to make podcasts and short radio shows detailing all they have learnt during their time at Penguin Explorers.
Children can attend the workshops, which will be available during term time, up until 30 November 2015 and the lucky winner will be announced on Monday 7 December 2015.
Chika Austin, community relations executive at LLA said:
“We’re delighted with the success of the studio and are excited about taking Penguin Explorers into the classroom with broadcasts, workshops and challenges. It’s a great opportunity for children across our Three Counties communities to find out more about different European countries and the travel industry and have fun while they learn.”
