Rhian has three years’ experience providing office administration support to Enviromentor. Rhian provides research, analysis, writing, and editing support to senior consultants at all stages of project development.
Morven has provided graphic design and information technology support to Enviromentor for over a year. She assists with branding, web design and supports communication planning and design for clients.
This year Morven represented the George Watsons College CanSat team, comprised of seven student members from years S5- S6 (ages 16-18). The project is a student-run design, engineering, technology and innovation project with the task of creating a small satellite module the size of a drinks can for European Space Agency. The satellite has a number of scientific sensors to monitor environmental parameters such as temperature, pressure and humidity and the data collected is used to draw conclusions about the ambient environmental conditions, when the satellite is launched. The GWC CanSat team won the UK National Championships, and participated in the European finals. An important part of the project has been to allow the students to determine how to work as a team, and to develop problem-solving skills, which can be transferred to their future careers and continuing professional development in technology and engineering sectors, as well as business management.
