Leading global security company Northrop Grumman and the Royal Air Force Museum in partnership with RAF Cosford and Tablet Academy are launching STAAR (Summer time Advanced Aerospace Residency) for a select number of Year 10 students following the hugely successful pilot programme in 2017. The two fully immersive residential week-long camps are taking place between 16 – 20 July and 23 – 27 July 2018.

The programme is funded by the Northrop Grumman Foundation and all places on the STAAR programme are provided free to the selected students.STAAR Students with a robot

There are 20 places available on each week-long camp and the selection process will be random. Nominations will be split into two draws by gender with 10 students chosen for each draw, to ensure an even gender split.
