Award Level Gold

GirlsGetSET is an exciting scheme aimed at showing girls aged 13-18 what Science, Engineering and Technology (or SET for short) are all about. It shows girls who are interested in SET subjects the massive opportunities open to them if they consider a future career in SET; this could be anything from designing the fastest rollercoaster to finding an alternative energy source.

GirlsGetSET currently runs in schools local to GE sites in Aberdeen, Amersham, Cardiff, Cheltenham, Cramlington, Gloucester, Groby, Hamble, Montrose, Nailsea, Prestwick and Rugby.
