GO4SET Launch 27/01/20
The GO4Set Launch at the Lakeside Education Centre took place on Friday 17th January. A group of 6 students were introduced to the project, with a focus on STEM subjects. Students were given the opportunity to tour the Lakeside Energy from Waste (Lakeside EfW) plant, giving them an idea of the processes that are involved in converting waste to energy. During their visit, they worked in teams to attempt to build the strongest bridge possible using plastic. This was an excellent activity which enabled the students to develop skills in team-building, communication, report writing and problem solving – essential skills in today’s world of work. The students will use the next ten weeks to meet with their mentors, who will provide them with professional support in developing an idea of a recycling project that would be sustainable.
