British Biology Olympiad

Roisin has recently been awarded a Bronze in the British Biology Olympiad and earlier this year received a Gold Duke of York Award for her work in the Challenge projects. Roisin’s ambition is to be a Neurosurgeon and she has a conditional place at Barts and London Medical School. She is studying Biology, Chemistry and Maths at A Level.

She says, “I think CAST is amazing. Being around people who are interested in Science at my age has really solidified what I want as a career and the teachers go out of their way to make sure you have organised your future plans.”

The Industrial Cadets Award

CAST students work with external employers and their success at this is reflected in a national industry-led accreditation – The Industrial Cadets Award. The aim of the award is to enhance workplace experiences for young people, giving them the skills they need to enter industry with confidence.

Bertie, Katrina and Jonah – along with a fourth student, Joshua – were part of a group of students from CAST who were given the Award for a project to design and create an ‘internet of things’ device. They were awarded the accolade by several employers, including Arm (the International chip set designer), after designing a smart watch to monitor people with epilepsy.

Jazmin Stewart EPQ Achievement

Having been the first student EVER to be awarded full marks for her Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), Jazmin has been asked to write about her project for ESERO, the educational arm of the European Space Agency, a huge honour in itself.

Jazmin’s EPQ project involved building a satellite and testing its resilience under the extreme weather conditions of space.

Jazmin, who would like to work in aerospace engineering, is studying A Levels in Computer Science, Physics and Maths. She hopes to go on to do an Apprenticeship or study a degree in Physics with Space Science.

She joined CAST with an interest in software engineering but after studying the astronomy and cosmology chapter in Physics, space became her passion – “Space is so absurd to me as it is something we still haven’t got to fully understand yet and I want to be part of the team that finds out more about it.”
