Objectives

EDT is a leading STEM education charity inspiring young people into Science, technology and engineering related jobs and industries. STEM skills are in short supply, indeed becoming critical in a number of industries and sectors. At the same time youth unemployment remains high. In addition many young people and their families are unaware of the job and career opportunities that exist within their locality and the routes to follow to attain them. EDT's impact is to provide young people with age relevant careers awareness, and to develop some of the key skills that employers seek.

Activities

We do this by providing schools and young people with real world hands-on experiences linked to and supported by employers, universities etc. These are in the form of taster days and courses, projects and placements. All activities are supported by industry mentors. EDT is represented nationally.
