Hundreds of children from schools across Aberdeen City and Shire have been given a taste of their potential futures in the subsea sector.
Organised by the Society of Underwater Technology (SUT), the day of fun lectures were given at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre with 800 pupils from 18 schools attending.
The event, targeting Primary 6-7 children, aims to take industry to the schools and provide an understanding of what the energy sector can offer in a fun way.
They are given an insight into the diversity of opportunities within the subsea environment around the UK’s shores.
Now in its fourth year, the annual event in the SUT calendar has grown from strength to strength.
A spokesman for the SUT said: “Having piloted this event on a very small scale four years ago the support year on year from speakers who have been involved and companies who provide giveaways has also been very encouraging.
“If the SUT can play a small part in planting some positive new ideas around what opportunities lie ahead for children in their future careers in the industry, then the exercise is extremely worthwhile.”
She also thanked the following for their help: Apache North Sea (Mark Richardson), Macduff Aquarium (Sandra Bisset), National Hyperbaric Centre (Dave Smith) and MacAskill Associates (Allan MacAskill).
