SSTL In Schools & Universities

SSTL In Schools & Universities
We have long recognised at SSTL we are only as good as our people. And one way we help ensure enthusiastic, dedicated and capable engineers and scientists continue to join us, is to catch their attention when young and attract them towards a career in Space. Systems Engineer Ted Learmont (pictured above) visited his old school in Kent and said "I thoroughly enjoyed speaking to the students and parents at Ashford School as an Alumni this week. It was great to see so many young people interested in engineering and open to exploring the possibilities available in the Space Industry. It's always worth reminding the next generation that the sky's not the limit, when there are footsteps on the moon."

In the same week, SSTL Mission Concepts Engineer Hamilton Law and Propulsion Engineer Daniel Gibbons were invited by the Cambridge University Spaceflight Society to visit the Cambridge University Department of Engineering and talk about SSTL, our early careers programme and the paths they each took into the Space industry.
