HAT (Higher Attainers) STEM Event

20 of our Y10 HAT students were incredibly lucky to be able to attend an inspiring careers talk on Thurs 18th Jan.

This was delivered by Stef Burns, a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) ambassador who is a commercial airlines pilot.

She spoke about her own challenging journey to be qualified which showed grit, determination and amazing perseverance and also shared some of her day to day experiences of flying a cargo plane all over the world.

The students were fascinated to learn about the cargo she carries ( from racehorses to Moonpig greetings cards!) and also the ongoing training she must undergo in the flight simulators based in Copenhagen.

A fascinating and very inspiring talk!

Thanks to Mrs Whelan-Davis for facilitating…
