STEM the Flow in 2019

Primary and secondary schools across Glasgow and the West Partnership area showcased their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) challenge solutions on how plastic can be removed from the River Clyde as part of a regional competition at the Riverside Museum.

Our Upstream Battle challenge in partnership with Jacobs, the West Partnership and Education Scotland, saw 17 schools from across the West of Scotland research and develop the best ideas to tackle plastic already in the Clyde or prevent it from entering the river.

The participating schools gathered at the museum to present their ideas to a panel of judges and compete for one of the top awards.
