Bright Ideas Challenge Winners

Inveralmond are excited to announce that three S2 students have been named overall winners for Scotland in Shell’s national schools science competition, The Bright Ideas Challenge.

The Bright Ideas Challenge asked students aged 11 to 14 to use their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) skills to come up with creative solutions for powering cities in 50 years time when the population will have grown.

They had to think of a problem that people will face and come up with an innovative solution.

Shannon Girvan and Poppy Fountain (pictured) along with Aliyah Hamilton came up with the idea of using abundant salt water to power cars instead of the fossil fuel petrol.

The girls have won £1500 to super-size the STEM learning experience at the school as well as a tablet for each team member. They will also be VIP guests at Make the Future Live, Shell’s four-day festival of ideas and innovation taking place at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park from May 25th.
