Pump It Up Challenge| The Results Are In

Very well done to our finalists for presenting their heat pump designs at the Pump It Up School Challenge Final last night at Howden Park Centre, Livingston. 

All 11 West Lothian secondary schools were represented and some truly innovative ideas were put forward showcasing the young peoples team work and research skills.

We were honored to have the President of Mitsubishi Livingston, Mr Yoshihiro Sumida and Mr Nozomu Takaoka, Consul General for Japan in Edinburgh as part of the judges panel with Provost Tom Kerr presenting the young people with their awards.

This is the fifth year that Mitsubishi Electric Air Conditioning Systems  have sponsored this project and we would like to thank them for their continued support of our young people.
