Engineering experts of the future
Semefab Production Manager George Smith said "These awards are to recognise and celebrate the dedication and hard work from the award-winning students. These students are our next engineering experts and can strive to achieve exciting and modern-thinking careers. I also believe it recognises the school's involved and how teachers apply themselves to STEM subjects.
I know from talking to the schools' staff how proud they are of what these students have achieved as well as the ones who just missed out. We all now look forward to the 2024 awards and wish all the students good luck."
