Girls in Energy- Shell Conference 2019

Brief: Global Energy Challenge

You and your team will be challenged to create a solution/idea and think about how technology can be applied to create cleaner and more efficient energy by 2050 focusing on one or more of the following areas:  transport, home or work (e.g. lighting, heating, mobility, using appliances).



  • Small teams of students will be challenged to find new ways of applying information technology to help create cleaner and more efficient energy solutions.
  • Each school will be given a Shell Ambassador to help them develop their ideas and work with them to build an interactive four-minute presentation.
  • The teams will ‘pitch’ their idea/solution to a panel of ‘dragons/judges’ in a four-minute presentation.  We’d like students to be as unique, creative and innovative as possible when developing their idea/solution.


Out of 26 teams, St Machar had 2 of their teams shortlisted to the final 8 and present on stage to 4 dragons and 200 others! Both teams excelled,  ‘Rooty Roots Team’ came 2nd Place. Great Achievement!!
