INSPIRATION TO GET STUDENTS READY TO ENTER

To prepare your students to take the competition by storm, why not…

  • Get students choosing their teams and debating the energy challenges they want to solve. How would your students continue to meet growing demand for energy in cities at the same time as reducing carbon emissions?
  • Set your students a half term research challenge to find out more about STEM topics that they could use to bring their entry to life. A few examples of ideas your students could explore include:
    • Can we use human energy to power devices? What might that look like?
    • Could buildings be designed to be more efficient? What materials would you use?
    • How could biomass be used to create clean burning fuels to power a city?
  • Spark inspiration about science, engineering and creativity by delivering one of our ice-breaker activities – perfect as pre-holiday lesson fillers!

THE YEAR OF ENGINEERING 2018

Shell is a proud supporter of the Year of Engineering, a year-long campaign led by HM Government to celebrate UK engineering. Alongside other supporting partners, we aim to excite and inspire young minds to explore where STEM might lead them in the future and the career opportunities this offers them. 

WORKING WITH TOMORROW'S ENGINEERS

Tomorrow’s Engineers Energy Quest is made up of the Energiser Workshop and The Bright Ideas Challenge. This engineering experience combines a practical workshop and careers inspiration with opportunities to think like an engineer and tackle future energy challenges. 

Visit tomorrowsengineers.org.uk to find out how to request a workshop.

The energy future

By 2050, the world’s population could grow to 9 billion people, up from about 7 billion now, with demand for energy up to three quarters higher in 50 years.

Make the Future

We believe that in the power of people's ingenuity lie the answers to tomorrow's energy challenges. Together we can #makethefuture today.
