“The Scottish teams have looked at a diverse range of problems close to their hearts and have come up with some very creative Big Ideas to tackle them.  I was so pleased to get up into the schools to meet most of you and hear about your ideas first hand.  It has been so hard to select only nine teams to go through to the Scottish final – there were so many brilliant ideas! I, and the team are looking forward to working with the teams moving forward.  I’m very proud of you all for working so hard, with such passion in what has been a challenging time for you all.  Well done!
