Successful completion of Nuffield and Crest Award projects by two students

STEM Team East arrange summer placements for students across the whole of Anglia region. ST Robotics facilitated a summer research project for Frances Conboy from Hills Road College, Cambridge and Xiaoding (Tom) Lu from the Perse School, Cambridge.

The project they chose was a simplified Cubli device and was probably too ambitious but they did a great job.

Left to right: the students Francis and Tom discussing the engineering principles with ST Robotics' intern, Kutlo Kebaikanye from Cambridge University.

The students then had to display posters on their projects at the Nuffield ceremony held at Anglia Ruskin University campus. Frances was awarded her Nuffield certificate and Tom gained his Crest Award.

This is Frances explaining the project to visitors.

STEM event at Duxford 2015

Once again ST had tables at the STEM Fair 1st July 2015 – Secondary Day for Years 7-13 at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford near Cambridge. Two sets of students built robots using our GoForth kits. We had quite a team present, all helping kids see what robotics is all about.This year, as you can see, we all had ST Robotics T-shirts!
