Go4SET 2017 Final

It looked like it was going to be a bad day. We were late setting off, Miss Lord felt sick on the bus, we hit traffic (of course we did we were travelling towards Birmingham, Miss Lord had forgotten some of the posters for our presentation board and we hadn’t  had chance to practice our presentation. The girls (Weronika, Jasmine, Alice, Freja and Christy-Louise) all felt a little unprepared. 

When we finally got there we constructed our presentation board and put up our model (The Green Trapezium) and then off we went to find a quiet corner to practice our presentations. All of the other stands had amazing looking models and presentation boards. It made the girls feel even more apprehensive.
