On the 30th April, Dustacco’s Alison Somerville participated as an Assessor along with Andy Currans of Hyspec Engineering and Robert Paterson of UTC at the annual Ayrshire Go4SET Celebration and Assessment Day at Dumfries House.

Students from across North, South and East Ayrshire participated in the Go4set project, which is run by leading education charity EDT (Engineering Development Trust) and is designed to equip young people with vital skills as well as to open their eyes to the possibility of pursuing a career within Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths (STEM).

Part of the day involves an assessment of the projects by a panel of assessors.  The assessors spoke with each participating team and judged their individual projects and presentations, before deciding (along with other teams of assessors) which team would be presented with the ‘Team Work Award’ and the ‘Best Overall Project Award.’  Carrick Academy (Maybole) were the overall winners, taking the trophy and a prize of £250.  Here they are pictured with their project display for an Eco-Hotel.  Auchinleck Academy won the Best Team working award and Queen Margaret’s in Ayr won the pupils-choice prize.
