Naturesave Funding

A while back we told you that we were lucky to have been awarded Naturesave Trust funding. Due to this fantastic gesture, we have been able to purchase new K’Nex kits. The kits are all STEM based, with most having a renewable energy focus.  These will allow us to diversity our educational offering, providing a different hands-on learning experience. By using K’nex, pupils of all abilities are able to build their model, using their ideas and present this to the rest of the class.

For further details of the kits that were bought and how we are using them, please see our education pages or view our photos on twitter or facebook.

Mind the Gap!

Category : Education

Mind the Gap

Bright Green Hydrogen and Bright Green Business are working in conjunction to offer  a new schools programme called Mind the Gap! This runs in the Midlothian Council area.


Mind the Gap is an educational programme which is designed to address the key growth employment sectors in Midlothian. Students from Midlothian Secondary Schools have the opportunity to experience master classes in the following sectors;

  • STEM
  • IT
  • Finance
  • Hospitality

Mind the Gap! takes place over 12 weeks and aims to inspire students to build their own future through presentations, employer talks, hands-on workshops and workplace visits.  These communicate key skills including team work, problem solving, time-management, networking and interview skills.


Activity sessions run from April to June 2018, and targets those studying National 4 or those looking to leave school in the summer. Students can take part in classroom sessions held at a central school location, and BGH/BGB expects pupils to make their own way to site visits.


We are currently looking to identify suitable students for this programme. If you know of any interested students, please email:


Midlothian Council supports Mind the Gap!  through the Schools Vocational Directory. School funds are required to cover the cost of £525 per student.
