Tomorrow's Engineers Energy Quest

Energy Quest

Tomorrow’s Engineers Energy Quest is a free schools programme that encourages young people (aged 11-14) to find out all about sustainable energy and learn about associated engineering careers.

Energy Quest, which is funded by Shell, includes the Energiser Workshop and The Bright Ideas Challenge.

The Energiser Workshop is an interactive STEM workshop packed with hands-on activities, careers information and stories from real engineers working in energy.  Students will receive their own workbook to capture learning as they explore concepts of energy generation, sustainability and technologies.

Each workshop is:

  • open to groups of up to 60 Key Stage 3 / Secondary 1, 2, 3 students
  • facilitated by a STEM expert
  • approximately 2.5 hours long but can be adapted to suit your needs
  • an opportunity to explores concepts in physics, design & technology and engineering
  • supported with all the kit required


The Energiser workshop is complemented by Shell’s cross-curricular competition The Bright Ideas Challenge, which this year offers more exciting prizes and experiences than ever before. The competition sees students team up and draw on their STEM skills, creative thinking, problem solving and teamwork to imagine innovative solutions that could one day power our future cities. Teachers have access to a suite of free, curriculum-linked resources.
