Invest in cutting edge technologies to address today’s challenges.

In a nutshell

During this Dragons’ Den style workshop leading businesses pitch innovations, based on real industry developments to teams of student Dragons.

After the pitches the Dragons have the opportunity to ask questions about the innovations, before deciding how they would invest their £1,000,000 worth of funding. Following investment, the students offer the businesses suggestions on how they could improve their ideas.

Overall, students greatly enhance their knowledge of the crucial role of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) in creating a low carbon future.

It was invigorating to promote the goals of sustainability and see these picked up and questioned by the students. The Dragon’s Den activity was a really good vehicle for learning!
