We recently announced that we were getting involved in this year’s Go4SET project run by The Engineering Development Trust with Gleniffer High School in Paisley (you can read more about it here). It is a scheme we are delighted to have been involved in for many years. Mike Young, one of our Project Engineers, has been mentoring and supporting the team throughout the project since it began February.
Following the Celebration and Assessment Day for the Drummond Hub held at the University of the West of Scotland Paisley campus on 14th May we are delighted to announce that the team we sponsored and mentored, ‘Always Green Energy’ from Gleniffer High School in Paisley, were declared the winners. They were presented with a trophy and certificate and will now go on to the Scottish final which will be held at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh on the 5th of June.
At the finals they will be up against the nine other Scottish hub winners where they will be competing for the national trophy. They are not required to prepare a new project so will be presenting their project, Future-Proof: Designing Buildings for Climate Change, to a new group of assessors.
The feedback from the assessors at the Drummond Hub was the best that our mentor, Mike Young, has heard in all the years he has been involved with Go4SET. The team were complimented on their presentation skills and their ability to answer questions. In terms of their formal written submission certain elements would not have been out of place in a professional engineering report.
Taylor and Fraser did not come away empty handed having been presented with a Certificate of Accreditation to the Bronze Level of the EDT Industrial Cadet framework
Mike Young will stay in touch with the school and offer any assistance that may be required ahead of the final next month. In the meantime, well done Gleniffer High!
