Leasowes Design & Technology students visit RAF Cosford, for this year’s STAAR programme.

1 March 2019

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.

STAAR Recruits will learn about advanced aerospace systems and concepts and will address how the need for solutions to achieve an air mission shapes the way engineers and scientists design aerospace systems. Recruits will also work towards a CREST Award and a Industrial Cadet Award during the programme.
