An Invitation to...

The Go4SET Celebration and Assessment Day – Celebrating success!

EDT South West would like to invite you to come along as a VIP Guest to our Go4SET Celebration and Assessment Day being held on:

Wednesday 23rd May 2018

12.00am – 3.00pm

Plymouth University

Drake Circus, Plymouth, PL4 48AA

What is Go4SET?

Go4SET aims at sparking the interest of Pupils (ages 12-14) into the possibilities of how they can use the maths and science they learn in school, to create innovative solutions to solve problems. A Team of six mixed-ability Pupils, partner with a local company to work on an environmentally themed project for 10 weeks.

With the current media attention drawn to the “Skills Gap” in the sciences and engineering, and calls from industry for young people to be better equipped with workplace skills, we feel the scheme takes active steps to promote STEM Careers and Employability Skills and, as such, is beneficial both to students and UK plc as a whole.

What is This Award For?

The Go4SET Celebration and Assessment Day Event is the culmination of a 10 weeks scheme – allowing teams of six students to present their projects to a panel of assessors (and guests). Each year, we hold a competition to find regional winners who have shown innovation and all round application of STEM.

If you don’t already know, I am sure that this event will open your eyes to the benefits that young Go4SET students gain by working with local businesses, allowing them to make real life connections between school and industry working.

The Event...

This year we are fortunate to be hosting the event at the Plymouth University and there will be the opportunity for a short tour of their cutting edge facilities. Usually our events offer an excellent networking opportunity as there will also be the chance to speak with the presenting students and senior managers from local companies.

Join in the Celebration

We hope you are able to attend and look forward to seeing you. Please feel free to circulate this invitation to any colleagues to whom you feel it could be of interest.

Please do let us know if you have any questions, we look forward to seeing you there!
