Aerospace Engineering - Samantha Trafford writes about the Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn

Our Year 10 Engineering students began their aerospace engineering course this year looking at the history of human space flight and exploration.  As part of this topic each student undertook research on a space mission of their choice, and produced a popular science-style article about that mission.

This week, Samantha Trafford writes about the Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn.

College Achievement – Energy Consumption reduced by 10%

Hi everyone,

Your friendly neighbourhood Sustainability Officer here with an exciting energy update …

So far this year, we have reduced our energy consumption by 10%!

This may sound small, but it’s a massive achievement. To put it into perspective, we’ve saved 18, 867 kWh, enough to power three typical 4-person houses in Ainslie for a year.

Thank you to everyone who has been Flicking the Switch and encouraging their students to do so. Your combined efforts have produced a real, tangible change – so well done

They were recognised as STRONG, INDEPENDENT, WISDOM women.

Together they promised to devote their lives to
