Pupils get science and tech boost

Budding scientists have finished a course designed to equip them for jobs in the industry.

Kids from 14 schools across Glasgow are celebrating after finishing the Go4SET scheme this week.

The 10-week competition aims to help young people take their first steps towards a career in science, technology, engineering or maths (STEM).

At an assessment day on April 27, kids got the chance to showcase their hard work to a panel of experts and their families.

St Paul’s High School won the overall prize, and will compete in a nation final in June.

Hyndland Secondary scooped the Outstanding Teamwork Prize, while Jordanhill was nominated by fellow teams for the Pupils’ Choice Award.

Glasgow City Council sponsor Viridor and the Engineering Development Trust helped organise the scheme.

Helen Anderson, of EDT, said: “Go4SET encourages young pupils of today to be the engineers and scientists of tomorrow.”
