All About STEM partner with ScottishPower to promote renewable energy in schools

All About STEM and ScottishPower have joined forces as corporate partners. Utilising the valuable skill sets from each company and their shared values, they plan to engage learners in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) of energy.

ScottishPower is the first company to produce power through 100% renewable sources, and it is always keen to engage with the community and schools to show who it is and what it does.

All About STEM is known for connecting businesses and organisations with schools to promote STEM.

Previously, ScottishPower collaborated with All About STEM to successfully develop renewable power workshops. To celebrate the fourth year of this partnership, they are launching the next phase of the Renewable Futures Programme.

Renewable Futures is aimed at children in Years 5 and 6 – learners look at processes and planet-friendly energy sources before building and making renewable power themselves using All About STEM’s specially designed kits.

Both companies have collaborated on numerous educational events over the years, ranging from careers fairs and bespoke science and engineering workshops to arena spectaculars inspiring thousands of children in STEM.

All About STEM and ScottishPower plan to celebrate their alliance with a whole series of activities for schools. Learners taking part will be inspired by the All About STEM team, introduced to ScottishPower’s Powerwise resources and encouraged to take part in CREST Awards and the All About STEM Competition.

Mairi Elder, social projects and sector education manager at ScottishPower, said: “We are delighted to continue our partnership with All About STEM in the North West.

“Addressing our industry STEM skills shortage is a high priority for us and we hope by encouraging the next generation to engage with STEM in a fun and interactive way we will spark their interest and help us to build the future talent pipeline we need as we move towards Net Zero, creating a better future, quicker for us all.”

Michelle Dow, managing director at All About STEM, said: “It is a pleasure to partner with ScottishPower; they have supported our work for many years and are a company dedicated to promoting STEM in schools.

“We know that we are all responsible for our planet including the next generation, so we are overjoyed to work together and play our part by providing fun, interactive energy education for learners to encourage a better, sustainable future.”

This powerful partnership creates sparks of inspiration for younger learners and lights the way for older students to exciting energy careers.
