Saltire Prize Finalist!

finalistAfter picking up a Highly Commended Award at the Ping-Pong Pentathlon earlier this year, we entered the Junior Saltire competition. The challenge was to design, build and test a simple Hydrokinetic Generator. Hydro-kinetic devices use the energy in flowing river streams, tidal currents or artificial water channels as a source of renewable power. I am so pleased to announce that our entry has been shortlisted as a finalist and we are now invited to continue to the next stage of the competition, which is:

Wednesday 4 June 2014: All 9 finalists have been invited to the University of Edinburgh where the electrical output of devices will be tested in the FloWave.

Thursday 5 June 2014: Final judging for all finalists will take place at SCDI’s Celebration of Engineering and Science event at Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh.

I must pass on my sincere thanks to Mr Elder who helped us enormously with our endeavour. I will post further details as soon as I have more information.
