Through participation in the workshop students will:

  • Understand what engineers do and how they use the engineering design process.
  • Learn how their own interests and skills can lead to a career in engineering.
  • Understand the range of opportunities a career in engineering has to offer.
  • Understand how energy is transferred using different experimental models.
  • Understand a range of sustainable energy sources and the role engineers play in green energy / sustainable technologies.


"I think the scenario was very apt. I think the students were kept busy and engaged."


Energy Quest has been designed so it links to the science and D&T curricula across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. It is also informed by the Gatsby Benchmarks in England linking curriculum learning to careers and providing encounters with employers.

A breakdown of how the Energy Quest workshop links to the national curricula can be found on in the FAQs.
