INSPIRING THE NEXT GENERATION
Arcola Energy is looking to the future by inspiring young people to explore renewable energy technologies and careers in engineering. Our education programmes demonstrate the science behind renewable energy in a fun and tangible way, exploring the workings of a low carbon economy on a miniature scale.
Since 2012, Arcola Energy have engaged with over 25,000 young people in locations ranging from Abu Dhabi and Aberdeen to London and the Isle of Wight. Our workshops and resources are developed and delivered by STEM professionals, offering a real life insight into STEM careers. Arcola Energy offer a unique brand of science communication. Through our work with Creative Engagement at Arcola Theatre, our facilitators train with experts in working with young people in a variety of settings.
The result is high quality STEM workshops that are exciting combinations of engineering, renewable energy and basic coding. For ages 9-16 the Hydrogen Car Challenge is a hands-on “design, build, race” team exercise. For ages 8-12 the hydrogen robot workshop is designed to introduce practical programming and engineering skills.
Our Schools Hydrogen Challenges offer our Hydrogen Car Challenge Workshop to schools across an entire city or region. Leading to a high profile final that can be focus for inviting local politicians or industry partners, this is a great way to engage not only young people and teachers, but also government and industry decision-makers.
As a development of the Hydrogen Challenge, we are going to run the world’s first Hydrogen Hack, bringing together 00 programmers and engineers for a week long hack during the summer holidays 2017 at 10 centres across the UK
