Young engineers took part in 'Hydrogen Hack' event took place on 21st August at Aberdeen City Hydrogen Energy Storage (ACHES) in Cove.  Young people aged 8-18 received a tour of the hydrogen refueling station while taking part in the event.

Fuel cell developer Arcola Energy is the company behind the hackathon event which saw 100 young inventors between the ages of 8 and 18 take on the challenge across the UK. The event in Aberdeen was supported by Aberdeen City Council and Hydrogenics (the company that built and operate ACHES).

Supported by some of the world's global technology giants including Toyota and Shell, the Arcola Energy Hydrogen Hack is an extension of the firm's long-running, not-for-profit Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) education programme.

The event aimed to raise awareness among young people of the benefits of hydrogen fuel cell technology - set to become a key, underpinning, low-carbon energy technology across many industry sectors and to inspire them into further study and careers in engineering.
