Students attend Go4Set launch day

Rotated PickYesterday a group of Year 8 and 9 students attended the launch day for the GO4SET project at Newcastle University.

The project aims to encourage young people to consider careers in Science, Engineering and Technology.

The group met with our industry Mentor, Rob Harrison from Altec Engineering LTD who will be working with them over the next 10 weeks to produce a report about the energy use at North Durham Academy.

In the report students will assess how energy is wasted within our school and how we can improve our energy use. Students will then present their finding to a panel of industry judges at Newcastle University on June 21st.

We wish our students the best of luck in the project!!
