SATRO is a highly impactful education charity. Their hands-on programmes for young people of all abilities (from the disadvantaged to the high-achieving) from ages 5-19 reached over 7,500 young people last year. They work with young people to embed key employability skills and inspire young people into careers and further study in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths).
The Foundation provided a grant of £1000 to SATRO to support the Computer Aided Design courses. This course runs in special needs school across Surrey and helps build the self-esteem and provide a different type of stimulation for these young people.
To enable SATRO to best meet the needs of our student cohort, it is essential that our programmes reflect the modern, changing world. The CareTech Foundation’s support enables SATRO to run a CAD (Computer Aided Design) and 3D printing session in four special needs schools.
Students will be taught how to use CAD software and will design and create an image and then print it in 3D. These are hands-on workshops using professional software and printers. The session will be taught as a value-add module and students will receive a certificate of attendance.
This programme gives the young people involved not only skills for life but helps them feel really confident and happy about their future. We look forward to updating you on the students’ progress and showing you their creations!
