Pupils from north-east schools have triumphed in this year’s Stem in the Pipeline competition.
The challenge tasked school pupils with finding a solution to an oil and gas challenge.
Reservoir Dogs from Aberdeen Grammar School took first prize, and Poseidon Tech from Robert Gordon’s College was awarded second place at the final, which took place at BP’s North Sea headquarters in Dyce.
Run by TechFest, Stem in the Pipeline began in September, when groups of senior pupils from schools across the north-east were set an oilfield challenge designed to test their skills in physics, maths, chemistry and geology.
Alies Bartelds, operations manager at TechFest, said: “We asked them to produce a field development plan, which happens all the time in the oil and gas industry.
“They have tackled that in three months and the solutions were extremely strong.”
