Pupils’ coin sorter wins

Have your say

Teams from Whitburn Academy won top prizes at a recent Young Technologist contest in West Lothian.

Organised by the Rotary club of Linlithgow and Bo’ness, the judges were from the Royal Institute of Structural Engineers.

The task was to design a coin sorter for charity, with the S2 teams sorting 1p and 2p coins from one entry point and the S3 teams sorting 1p, 2p, 5p and 10p coins.

Whitburn Academy’s S2 team submitted the only design with a 100 per cent success rate.

Both teams were presented with trophies for their efforts.
