What does SCHOLARS status mean?
The third tier of the Cambridge LaunchPad is for students between 16 and 17 years of age. The ‘Scholar’ programme aims to expand the students’ knowledge and interest in STEM.
The programme for year 12 students begins with a brief presentation in school to introduce the concept of LaunchPad and explains the work they will complete as part of the scheme. A project is devised by a corporate partner which encourages students to research a specific topic.
Winning teams are then invited to attend and compete at the scholars’ activity day-hosted on the premises of a corporate partner.
