The journey to inspire more young people about engineering starts in school. That’s why Shell has invested an additional £1million in the Tomorrow’s Engineers Energy Quest, which helps students explore the science and maths curriculum in a fun and engaging way. The Energy Quest includes:

  • The “Energiser Workshop” delivered by an experienced Tomorrow’s Engineers presenter, including hands-on activities, careers information and stories from real engineers working in energy. Students receive their own workbook to capture learning as they explore energy generation, sustainability and technologies
  • followed by the classroom based school competition The Bright Ideas Challenge which asks students to imagine creative ideas for how cities of the future might be powered.

As well as bringing key parts of the curriculum to life, The Energy Quest gives students the opportunity to take part in exciting science experiences, learn about engineering careers and meet engineers and scientists from their local community.

Students with teacher

The UK needs more engineers, so we have to get student’s excited about science, technology, engineering and maths.

The Tomorrows Engineer’s Energy Quest programme is doing just that with great results.*

  • Busting Myths: Energy Quest students are twice as likely to know what engineers do!
  • Inclusive: 9 out of 10 girls think that engineering is for girls as well as boys.
  • Aspirational: and the girls are twice as likely to see engineering as a desirable career.

Shell is investing to reach 80,000 more students. Shell and Energy Quest are inspiring future engineers.
