School pupils across the north-east have been given the chance to meet British astronaut Tim Peake by coming up with ideas to help tackle climate change.
A special event will be held at the Robert Gordon University next March by the organisation The Data Lab to help encourage youngsters to get interested in science, technology, engineering and maths (Stem).
A total of 200 S1 to S3 pupils from across the north-east will be invited to attend, and the team which comes up with the best idea to make the world a greener place will get the opportunity to ask Mr Peake questions as part of a question and answer session.
To take part, the pupils will need to think of a solution to climate change or other environmental issues, and submit a video detailing why it needs addressed and how they propose to solve the problem.
Jude McCorry, head of business development at The Data Lab, said: “This is a great opportunity for local school pupils to apply their imagination and problem-solving skills to a solution that could help tackle climate change.
“In return, they will get to meet and question Tim Peake, one of the most hugely influential Stem ambassadors of all time.”
