Breasclete Primary and Iochdar Primary are amongst 19 schools who took part in the Annual Highlands and Islands Celebration for SCDI’s Young Engineers and Science Clubs.

Pupils attended the event in Inverness’ Eden Court Theatre to showcase their achievements in science and engineering and compete for prizes.

Over 200 kids attended alongside local companies who challenged them to solve problems in science, technology, engineering and maths.

Iochdar Primary showcased their “exploration into the detrimental effects caused by the introducing of non-native species.”

Whilst other primaries tested their ferry designs to coincide with the launch of the first Eco-Ferry on the Clyde.

Jane Martin, Programme Director of SCDI’s Young Engineers and Science Clubs said: “The aim of Young Engineers and Science Clubs is to show young people that science and technology is not only fun but can lead to a great career.

“The standard and quality of the projects which are showcased are fantastic, proving that youngsters in the region have the creativity and skills required to pursue careers in science and engineering.”
