Hamish Laing (pic­tured above), a me­chan­i­cal engineering stu­dent at the Univer­sity of Can­ter­bury, is spend­ing the sum­mer work­ing on engineering projects at Scott Base as a Sir Peter Blake Trust Antarc­tic Youth Am­bas­sador.

The 24-year-old is work­ing on an au­to­matic re­port­ing process for the base’s build­ing man­age­ment sys­tem, which will en­able base staff to an­a­lyse how much en­ergy, wa­ter and waste they are us­ing.

Hamish is one of two Antarc­tic Youth Am­bas­sadors on en­vi­ron­men­tal ex­pe­di­tions, run in con­junc­tion with Antarc­tica NZ and the Antarc­tic Her­itage Trust.

Later this year another two Blake Am­bas­sadors will join a NIWA re­search ves­sel in the South­ern Ocean.
