Students had the opportunity to explore how people use and create energy in everyday life through…

  • Hands-on activities in the Make zones
  • Interactive science shows from leading education entertainers
  • Engaging careers experiences with scientists and engineers
  • Interactive exhibits exploring what the future of energy could look like

Schools also watched teams battle it out in the world famous Shell Eco-marathon student mileage competition, which challenged more than 180 teams from across Europe and Africa to design, build and drive the world’s most fuel-efficient vehicles.

As part of the festival’s educational experience for schools, students could complete an Energy Treasure Hunt as they explored the festival, automatically entering their school into a prize draw to win £1,000 to super-size science learning. We’re pleased to announce that Dagenham Park School are the winners!

Schools who registered also received a digital Wrap-Up pack that includes an interactive festival map, complete with videos, case studies and teacher notes, to help bring the STEM careers featured at the festival to life!
