Silver CREST awards presented to high school pupils
Trinity High School in Rutherglen ran the project to design an eco-classroom in conjunction with the Engineering Development Trust's Go4SET (Go for Science, Engineering and Technology).

Under the British Science Association CREST Awards, students have a chance to expand their experience and understanding of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects and the career opportunities offered by STEM study.

The Silver CREST Awards recognise the amount of project work undertaken individually by the students, incorporating research, report writing and communication of findings from the eco-classroom project.

The pupils were mentored by BBES project engineer Grant Barbour over a 10-week period.

At a special event, Peter Bollen, head teacher of Trinity High, was presented with two certificates in recognition of the school's participation in the scheme.
