Batavieren race

Friday the 28th and Saturday the 29th of April the biggest student relay race of the world, the Batavieren race, has taken place again. Of course there was a team representing Astatine and we are very proud to say that we have finished in the top 200 (the 199th place to be exact)! The A-Team consisting out of 25 runners managed to run the 175 kilometers in 16:03:16!



Hannover Messe

On the 25th of April Astatine went to the Hannover Messe together with W.S.G Isaac Newton. On the Hannover Messe students got to see the companies they might work in the future. Allowing students to get these insights is not only important, but also proved to be a lot of fun!Hannover_Messe_group_pic.jpg


Winner educational price 2016-2017

On the 31st of March, we announced the 2016/2017 Advanced Technology Teacher of the Year. We glad to announce that James Seddon is this year’s Teacher of the Year! James Seddon began as module coordinator of the fourth module of Advanced Technology, Dynamics, in 2016. His take on the module was immediately greeted much positive feedback and rose to be the best module of the Advanced Technology program based on student feedback. This can be contributed to James’ clear communication both during lectures and on blackboard in his native English, his open-mindedness regarding the structure his lectures and module, and his constant strive to improve and receive feedback from his students.
