Pump it up Challenge Final
On Monday 5th June 2 of our S3 pupils, Melanie and Katie, represented Whitburn Academy in the finals of the Mitsubishi pump it up challenge 2017 at Howden Park.
All 11 west lothian secondary schools had a team there but this has started with over 1600 pupils so for Melanie and Katie to get this far was a great achievement. Melanie and Katie gave a superb, confident and detailed presentation on using heat pumps to power incubators in hospitals for premature babies.
Despite a great effort they did not win but did the school and themselves proud.
