Birmingham Airport partners with "The Wonder Why Society" to support a local education initiative

Birmingham Airport has partnered with a social enterprise company called "The Wonder Why Society"
to help promote inspired learning and improve educational opportunities for pupils in local primary schools

Based in Birmingham and part of the Solihull Chamber, the company aims to tackle two social problems
- disengaged learning and the skills gap. The interactive learning platform informs and engages users on
issues such as the environment and community and has a Birmingham Airport zone included

Jo Lloyd, Birmingham Airport's Commercial Director said: "We have always believed that supporting the
education of young people is one of the most effective ways in which we can invest in our region's future"

"The Wonder Why Society is an innovative way for us to take our education programme forward in an
exciting and dynamic direction. We're sure the local pupils, who will be given access to the site from
airport funding, are going to love exploring a whole new world of learning"

Samantha Fisher, Chief Executive Officer of Wonder Books Limited, said: "Birmingham Airport is our
first business partner which is fantastic news. It not only gives the project a huge step up in terms of
recognition and support but also brings local industry into education. We are really looking forward to
bringing together children, schools, parents and industry experts in the local area and working as a
team to engage with children and motivate them to learn independently and develop their skills."

This project is in line with Birmingham Airport's Corporate Responsibility Strategy of developing
local communities and promoting health and wellbeing in the area. For more information about
