Refrigeration is cool for schools

UK: The Institute of Refrigeration is launching a Cool for School competition to raise awareness of refrigeration technologies amongst schoolchildren. 

Part of an extension to the IoR’ Fantastic Fridges website, the Cool for School competition aims to challenge KS3 students to explore the science, technology, engineering and mathematical principles that underlie refrigeration processes, and come up with a video of simple experiment or presentation to demonstrate one of these. 

A number of great prizes are up for grabs including £2,000 worth of science kit for the school packed with equipment and books for the winning team’s school. 

The initiative is being supported by several leading RACHP businesses including FJB Systems, 3CL, Airmasters, Ellis Training Works, Haier Group, Integral, J&E Hall, the JD Cooling Group, Sure Solutions, Star Refrigeration, Artic Circle, CRT, GEA, and Bitzer.

Commenting on the new web site and on the competition, Miriam Rodway, CEO, Institute of Refrigeration said “We are keen to show students at an early stage how interesting and vital our industry is, and that cooling is part of what keeps our world going. This web site is also a great chance for us to showcase the fantastic job opportunities our industry offers and that it can provide long and fulfilling careers with great potential.”
