Energy and Sustainability
Hear from our researchers about how they are working to develop new technologies, and to increase our understanding of different energy resources whilst doing so in a sustainable way.
In this module, you can learn more about some of our staff and students working on topics linked to energy and sustainability. Their profile pages contain lots of information about them including their research, inspiration, and their STEM heroes, as well as short interviews. Even more staff and students can be found within the main profile pages, demonstrating lots of different pathways and careers within this topic.
Do watch the researcher talks and try the activities – it's all designed to bring these topics to life!
