VIDEO: Students’ delight at winning RAF engineering award

Ten Wycombe High students have won a prestigious engineering award in a national schools competition organised by the Royal Air Force.

And their prize is a week-long residential engineering course at RAF Cosford this summer.

Headteacher, Sharon Cromie revealed the news of the competition victory, by surprising the ten students in one of the Wycombe High’s Physics labs.

Physics teacher, Jeremy Crocker, said: “To win this illustrious award, the Wycombe High students had to perform various engineering tasks across the STEM spectrum, culminating in the design and specification of a military drone”.

The annual STAAR (Summer Time Advanced Aerospace Residency) Contest is organised by the RAF in conjunction with the Northrop Grumman Foundation – a philanthropic organisation whose work includes the encouragement of STEM education in schools.
