E.ON Smart Kids

Why is it innovative?

  • As part of our long-standing relationship with E.ON to deliver STEM and energy-related outreach to primary schools, we devised and delivered Smart Kids.
  • This included workshops which taught children about energy-related topics. Schools were nominated by employee volunteers who often also helped at the sessions.
  • Workshops were delivered in E.ON’s key regions, boosting employee engagement through nominations (of employees’ children’s schools) and providing employee volunteer opportunities.

How does it inspire learning?

  • The workshop enabled children to get in character and become scientists for the day, and take part in a series of interactive experiments.
  • Comedic characters facilitated the workshop and helped children to learn facts in a fun and interesting way.

How successful?

  • Over two years, Smart Kids visited 194 schools and engaged over 10,000 pupils.
  • Smart Kids won at the EVCOM Clarion Awards in the ‘Interactive’ category.
  • The workshop was also part of E.ON’s winning entry at the Utility Week Industry Achievement Award 2014 for Community Initiative of the Year.

Testimonial 

Thank you for giving the children such a good time. I am not sure they realised they were learning while they had so much fun! But I am sure they will remember both the experience and the things they learned because of the way in which it was presented.
