E.ON Engineering and Science Workshops

The E.ON workshop, newly designed for 2018/19, will use engineering challenges to explore the importance of problem solving, creativity, and design in engineering and science disciplines.

Students will begin the two hour workshop with a short discussion of energy sources, renewable energy and electrical circuits. The workshop then moves onto the electric car challenge which requires students to construct, charge and operate a miniature electric car, with the intention of their car reaching a specific target. In small groups, students then use their creative skills to design a new, innovative product to aid with energy efficiency. E.ON’s charity, Dementia Friends, is also discussed, and students are challenged to try to make their product suitable for a person with the condition. The workshop culminates with each small group of students presenting their ideas to the rest of the class.

The workshop lasts for 2 hours and can be delivered to up to 30 year 7 students. We can deliver two workshops in one day, seeing up to 60 students in total.
