Why Ballantyne?

The Ballantyne, the Society’s annual event for secondary pupils aged 14-18 years, is named after Dr Archie Ballantyne, Secretary of the RAeS from 1951-1973, whose key achievements included overseeing the lecture theatre extension in 1966, the Society’s 100th year. Ballantyne was particularly keen interested in young people’s development so it is fitting that nearly 50 years on, the event continues in his name and with this core objective at its heart.
