GirlsGetSET is an exciting scheme aimed at showing girls aged 13-18 what Science, Engineering and Technology (or SET for short) are all about.

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