BUDDING boffins at a Bromsgrove school have been enjoying a visit from two top scientists.

Bruno Pollet and Dan Symes, two researchers from Birmingham University’s chemical engineering department, visited South Bromsgrove High School, in Charford Road, on December 15.

The scientists are currently involved in solving the world’s energy crisis through cutting edge research on hydrogen fuel cells.

The researchers held a presentation to the chemistry students about the cells, and how scientists believe they will provide us with carbon-neutral energy within the next 20 years.

Following the presentation Dan and Bruno held a question and answer session with the Year 13 students, which focused on the limitations of the technology.
