“Go4SET increases student's confidence in problem-solving within real life contexts, whilst improving team-working and communication skills. Opportunities to work closely with industrial mentors and attend industrial visits give students positive and fun STEM experiences. Students develop a more coherent understanding of the links between STEM subjects and how they impact upon other areas of the curriculum. We have also experience an enrichment of the teaching and awareness of STEM learning across the curriculum through these enrichment activities resulting in a more cohesive way of working between the subject teachers."Javed Shujaat, STEM Coordinator at Trinity Catholic High School
