SETPOINT Hertfordshire

SETPOINT Hertfordshire is an educational charity with core funding from Hertfordshire County Council Education Department, hosted by MBDA, a large engineering company, at their site in Stevenage. In the 2009/10 academic year, over 36,000 Hertfordshire children experienced our programmes and schemes.

We inspire children & young people in Hertfordshire about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). We exist because currently not enough young people are choosing to study and follow careers in STEM, and for the sake of the future success of the UK economy, this needs to change.
