Marine Scotland Science working in collaboration with Glasgow School of Art

Collaboration between Marine Scotland Science and the Glasgow School of Art is bringing together creative talent with scientific endeavour.
 
Aberdeen-based Marine Scotland Science (MSS), the government division responsible for delivering expert marine and fisheries scientific advice, is working with the Glasgow School of Art to mentor Product Design Engineering (PDE) students, a course run jointly with the University of Glasgow.
 
Student Deborah McGill, from Newton Mearns, spent 18 months on the mentoring programme, as she worked on her final degree project to develop a portable sediment trap design. Sediment traps are the apparatus used to assess the condition of sea water or water in lakes or lochs.
