Aerospace Residency for Madhukar

Published 3 June 2024

In March, BartholoNews encouraged students to consider applying for the STAAR (Summer Time Advanced Aerospace Residency) Programme 2024. This is a residential summer camp at which students will have the opportunity to experience flight simulators, drone flying, explore the world of engineering in aviation and engage with industry professionals. This will hopefully encourage them to study and take up careers in STEM-related fields.

We are delighted that Madhukar (9E3) will be one of only 40 Year 9 students in the whole of the UK taking part!

His application was supported by a reference from one of his science teachers, Ms Thomson, who says, This is a wonderful opportunity for Madhukar. To be chosen from a very strong field of 180 students is fantastic. We hope he will have an amazing time on this STAAR and we are looking forward to hearing all about it after the summer holidays.”
