Go4SET is a brand new engineering education initiative from the Engineering Development Trust (EDT).
They research the challenge locally, nationally and globally and visit a company where they get to see how an engineering organisation addresses similar challenges. They also participate in team building and project management exercises, learn presentation and report writing skills and prepare for their final assessment.
Go4SET provides its participants with the opportunity of working with and being mentored by real scientists, engineers and technologists chosen from the complete spectrum of science, engineering and technology disciplines. This empowers students to make informed decisions about their Key Stage 4/Standard Grade options, particularly with regard to SET courses.
The project outcomes are assessed at a celebration day. Students from Little Ilford (pictured here) took part in Go4SET last year where their project involved harvesting rainwater to use in the school’s toilets.
