Nuffield Science Bursary Scheme for Schools & Colleges Celebration Event Scotland Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh Friday 28th August 2009 WELCOME TechFest-SetPoint would like to welcome you to the Scottish Nuffield Science Bursaries for Schools & Colleges Celebration Event. The Bursary Scheme enables fifth or sixth year secondary school students who are interested in pursuing a career in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM), to work alongside practising scientists, technologists, engineers and/or mathematicians in commercial/industrial establishments, research institutions or universities. The Nuffield Foundation awards each student a bursary to carry out a project which is designed to make a real contribution to the host organisation as well as benefit the students themselves. During the project period the host also undertakes to show the student the full extent of their organisation’s work. The projects last four, five or six weeks and take place during the summer vacation. This Celebration Event offers the students involved in the scheme an opportunity to display what they have achieved during their placements and to meet and discuss it with other bursary students, supervisors, teachers and guests. This year has again been another successful year with a total of 97 students taking part in the scheme throughout Scotland. We are particularly delighted to welcome Dr Alan Walker, Secretary of the Institute of Physics in Scotland as our Guest of Honour who will present the students with their certificates of achievement. TechFest-SetPoint is proud to be associated with the Nuffield Foundation and to administer the Bursary scheme for the whole of Scotland. We hope you have a very enjoyable day. Liz Hodge Managing Director TechFest-SetPoint Frances Chapman Nuffield Co-ordinator TechFest-SetPoint GUEST OF HONOUR Alan
