Everest conqueror returns to tell the tale!

We were delighted to welcome back alumna and Everest climber Dr Melanie Windridge at our last assembly of the year! Melanie was in attendance to help present some of the fantastic STEM prizes that some of our exceptional students won as part of the Shell Bright Ideas Challenge, but before this exciting moment she took us through her epic journey from base camp to the peak of Everest! Complete with videos, images and an incredible amount of interesting facts!

Watch Dr Melanie Windridge's series, The Science of Summiting Everest, for lots on statistics, fitness preparation, oxygen systems and more!
