Through an exciting narrative, students are challenged to save the day by utilising their practical engineering skills and find a solution to help a group of young people in danger. During the challenge, students encounter a range of engineers as they uncover the skills engineers possess and the way energy plays an important role in all our lives.
Energy Quest is a curriculum-linked programme for schools which is designed for secondary students aged 11-14 to help them find out all about sustainable energy and learn about associated engineering careers.
Funded by Shell, over the last eight years EngineeringUK has developed Energy Quest into a well-received programme, reaching 194,000 young people through 6719 sessions in 2,833 UK schools.
From 2020 to 2023, EngineeringUK will be working with partners and funders to develop, test and evaluate different content and ways of delivery to maximise the programme’s impact on young people, particularly girls and other groups that are under-represented in the engineering profession.
Workshops are free for schools.
