Shell land in Heriot Watt to find next generation of innovators

Heriot-who?


A large white tent has been erected inside the James Watt Centre on the campus of Heriot Watt, by energy giant Shell.

The global company is running an innovative careers event inside the tent from noon till 6pm today to find the bright sparks that are going to #makethefuture, and encourage them to enter their Ideas360 competition.

Once inside visitors are faced by a series of challenges, the interactive event’s energy zone asks participants to think about using human movement to create electricity.
