Hydrogen Challenge Proves Great SuccessOctober 1, 2014
The annual Hydrogen Challenge run by Bright Green Hydrogen in conjunction with Fife College, has once again been an overwhelming success. The challenge involves teams of S3 pupils from High Schools around Fife, competing against each other to make the furthest travelling airship, and to design and build the most efficient hydrogen powered boat. The challenges introduce the pupils to the concept of using hydrogen and fuel cell technologies, which Bright Green Hydrogen use to power their demonstration centre in Methil.
Karen Ritchie from Bright Green Hydrogen said “We are delighted to work with Fife College as part of our renewable energy education programme, which allows us to grow the interest of pupils in science, technology, engineering and maths. The Hydrogen Challenge is just one of a variety of STEM events run throughout the academic year”
Bill Hutchison from Fife College added “It is encouraging to see such innovation and enthusiasm amongst the pupils”
The teams who proved most successful on the day were Buckhaven High School who managed to propel their neutrally buoyant airship, and Inverkeithing High School who were victorious in getting their fuel cell boat to travel the furthest. Viewforth HS and St Columba’s were highly recommended by the judges also.
