In recognition of their outstanding STEM projects, Christopher Telfer-Mason and Jamie Styles received a Certificate of Achievement from the RIN (Royal Institute of Navigation) in July.
In a prestigious event in the beautiful Ondaatje Theatre at The Royal Geographical Society, which overlooks Kensington Gardens, Christopher received the certificate and then gave a presentation explaining the recent STEM initiatives.
The audience, which contained many of the world’s leading navigation scientists and pioneers, responded very warmly to the energy and boldness of the two STEM projects: balloon tracking and the self-steering model yacht. Using film clips of the students working on the projects to illustrate his talk, Chris blended wit and enthusiasm in a highly entertaining presentation.
Epsom shared the stage with some other highly accomplished winners of the certificate, including Shaesta Waiz, the first woman to fly solo around the world in a single engine aircraft.
