    Time to turn on Tech for our First Digital Science Festival! We are delighted to host the biggest digital Science Festival in Scotland.
  • From September 13, 2020 00:00 until December 01, 2020 10:52
    This competition is open to S5 and S6 students and is a solo research project. The students are tasked with researching a topic or question that is related to the energy industry. As part of their research each student must interview at least one external industry professional. This project is designed to give ambitious students the opportunity to examine a topic of interest while developing their independent research and writing skills.

    This is a project for teams of S6 pupils (max of 6 pupils per team). It is a three-month project that this year will be entirely digital. In addition, TechFest is excited to announce that this project has undergone an extensive revamp. The project now focusses on how the Energy Industry is transitioning to reduce carbon emissions as much as possible, as part of the global movement towards net zero. Inspired by CNOOC Internationals Buzzard Platform, students are challenged to develop a proposal to install and connect an offshore wind farm to the facility, which will generate power for the installation and reduce the amount of gas import required to provide electricity.
