The day will begin with a presentation and Q&A with Jenny Eyes, digital Ppoduct chief at Jaguar Land Rover.

And a a day of activities, pupils will have the chance to meet Eliza Seville, Formula Woman 2022 winner and mechanic and test pilot at Roborace, and Chloe Grant from Laser Tools GB4 Racing Team, to discover what it takes to be a successful woman in motorsport.

The following day, the museum will host a STEM Careers Day open to all pupils. After an presentation from industry partners, pupils will take an interactive tour of the collection, race remote-controlled Jaguar D-types around a special track, try out some hands-on science activities with the STEM ambassadors from MoD Kineton and much more.

It will be an exciting day of immersive and interactive learning in a unique setting, surrounded by our amazing collection of historic British cars.”
