The Aberdeen Schools Hydrogen Challenge has been developed through the Arcola Energy for Schools programme, which has delivered science and technology workshops to more than 5,000 children and young people since its launch in autumn 2010. On Thursday 11 September a group of S4 pupils from Engineering Science, Physics and Chemistry took part in a 90 min workshop. Students worked in teams to engineer 1.5W hydrogen fuel cells efficient vehicles using custom-designed Lego kits. The winning team progressed through to the Aberdeen City Final in which the Dyce Academy team won. The winning team consisted of Ross Keech, Jessica Oyovwevotu, Jordan Sainsbury and Kim Moir.

S5-6 students have now started working with their PT Pupil Support on their UCAS and CUKAS applications.  Various deadlines have been set by the PTs Pupil Support in order that references can be completed and applications received by UCAS and CUKAS in time.  Details of the deadlines can be found here -

It is the up to the students to meet these deadlines, not for the PT Pupil Support to chase them!

S1 pupils combined their historical and technical skills by building model Stone Age shelters in Social Subjects.

Working in pairs, they designed their own tent and created it from material, including sticks, string and scrap material.

The classes created a fantastic selection of shelters, which are now on display in 308.
