Educating Engineering Scheme Team

Congratulations to the budding engineers of Williamwood High School’s Educating Engineering Scheme Team who, yesterday, won the Pupils’ Choice Award for best Project at the prestigious EDT Scottish Finals. The team is made up of S5 pupils: Cameron, Ruaridh, Finlay, Ciara, Kerry and Madelaine and they have spent the last six months working with SPX-Flow (Clyde Union Pumps) on a solution to prevent catastrophic failure in an oil-rig pump. The team’s successful design will in the next few weeks be shipped out to the Arabian Gulf to be installed on an oil platform for testing.  The team would like to thank the Engineering Development Trust (Scotland), the engineers at SPX-Flow who mentored them throughout the project, and Mr Honeyman, Mr McLaren and Miss Elliott for all their help and support.
