The STAAR (Summer Time Advanced Aerospace Residency) Programme
Applications for STAAR 2020 are now open!
The STAAR Programme will be running from 20 - 24 July and 27 July - 31 July 2020.
The STAAR (Summer Time Advanced Aerospace Residency) Programme is brought to you by Northrop Grumman, with the support of the Northrop Grumman Foundation, and in partnership with the RAF Museum. It is being delivered by the Museum, Royal Air Force Cosford, RAF Youth and STEM Engagement Team and Tablet Academy.
STAAR is designed for Year 10 students who demonstrate an interest or aptitude for one or more STEM subjects. It is a fully-funded immersive week-long, hands-on residential camp, like no other. Successful students stay with chaperones on base at RAF Cosford, and each day of the course is delivered at the RAF Museum or on base at RAF Cosford by RAF Museum STEM Ambassadors, industry experts from Northrop Grumman, Tablet Academy professionals and RAF STEM personnel.
Recruits will also work towards a CREST Award and a Industrial Cadet Award during the programme.
CREST is a nationally recognised scheme for student-led project work in the STEM subjects, and is respected by universities and employers and enhances students’ UCAS personal statements.
Industrial Cadets is an industry-led accreditation, which gives recruits a unique insight into industry. Skills and knowledge are built and enhanced whilst being mentored by industry role models
Students who may not have decided to take up STEM are interested in taking up STEM subjects.To book this activity, please contact:
