An inspiring morning at Surrey Satellite Technology
A selection of students from St Peter’s spent a most inspiring morning at Surrey Satellite Technology in Guildford, today, to celebrate the government’s Year of Engineering this year.
Our Year 9 and Year 12 students saw ‘mission control’ for SSTL’s first all-British radar mini satellite, NovaSAR, launched in India last Sunday. They met engineers who work on the satellites and learnt about how satellites are designed, built, tested, launched and operated.
Students found out about SSTL’s apprenticeship programme, work experience, internships and graduate programmes to help them understand the routes into aerospace engineering.
