Transport Scotland is funding the development of promotional engineering learning aids using the Forth Bridges as the subject to the tune of £425,000.The funding will be used to develop games, apps and interactive models all aimed at developing pupils’ STEM skills. That is an impressive investment in the future.
Transport Minister Humza Yousaf said: “The Forth Bridges represent Scotland’s industrial past, creative present and our dynamic and innovative future.
“They are the pinnacle of world-leading design and engineering and it’s right that we conserve and protect them and also seek to inspire and educate the young engineers of the future.
“If the bridges are a globally unique showcase of Scotland’s world-class engineering skills, this amazing 3D scanning project also showcases the world-leading design, research and innovation in our Higher Education institutions.”
