Well done to our 2024 Royal Society STEM Partnership Project team!

On Wednesday, six Sutton High School students travelled to St James’s, London to participate in The Royal Society’s 2024 Student Conference. Four of the students, Kiyara W (Year 13), Sophie S (Year 13), Farah R (Year 12) and Priya C (Year 12) have completed the GDST Space Technology Diploma in past years and are now serving as student mentors for GDST-wide events for the programme. The other two students, Eliza G (Year12) and Juliette S (Year 11) are currently part-way through this year’s diploma course. The girls and Ms Buttigieg have been working extremely hard throughout the year to complete their Sutton High School STEM Partnership project, ‘Can Image and Sensor Data be Collected from Remote Airborne Devices, for Ground-Based Processing?‘, partnering with Launch Access Ltd, Cambridge University Space Flight and NASA Earth Science Data Systems. As a team, the girls presented their project formally to Royal Society Fellows, Mrs Dawson (who was also very proud to attend!) and several other participating UK-wide 2023 STEM grant recipient schools, who had travelled into London for the showcase conference that day.

In recognition of all their hard work, the girls relished in the superb opportunities given to them during the conference, to be professionally coached in live scientific project presenting and to meet and interact with other students showcasing their project work on a variety of other different advanced-level science experiments. They also indulged in a special programme of additional scientific presentations prepared by Royal Society fellows, as well as a delicious formal lunch in the exquisite Royal Society surroundings – a rich scientific learning environment dating back to the 1600s!

Very well done to our 2024 Royal Society STEM Partnership Project team at Sutton High School!
