Writing Competition

Celebrating Scotland’s Year of Stories at the Orkney International Science Festival, with The George Mackay Brown Fellowship Wirdsmit writing group and the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) – guest judge Ken MacLeod. To celebrate Scotland’s Year of Stories we are using the power of creativity to imagine the future, and with a little help from the renewable energy experts at EMEC, we’re launching an exciting science fiction creative writing competition.

It’s a challenge for schools, primary and secondary: to design and build a model wind turbine. There’s various sources of help, including a resource kit available for each school, provided by Orkney sponsors. The Challenge has been developed by the Young Engineers and Science Clubs Scotland (YESC), in a collaboration with Orkney Renewable Energy Forum (OREF) and Orkney International Science Festival.
