GES Summer School 2020

organised by

Goonhilly Earth Station Ltd

in Helston, UK


Our annual Year 12 Summer School will run from the 29th of June until the 3rd of July 2020. For five days you will learn about the work we do here at Goonhilly, the basics of satellite communications and related maths, science, and technology. The school includes a mix of lectures, demos, and hands-on project work in a team. You will also meet representatives from the Goonhilly Heritage Society and from Avanti Communications.

If you're currently in Year 12 at a school in the UK, this is your opportunity to get a real taste of the knowledge and working methods in the space industry!

The school will run from 9-5 from Monday to Friday. Please note that we cannot provide accommodation or transportation, so you will have to arrange your own means to come to Goonhilly each day. We can, however, facilitate a ride sharing forum with others on the course (details available on sign up).
