Drax Project Reinvent Challenge

Drax invites schools to participate in its Project Reinvent challenge – a STEM and Enterprise Competition.

Drax, Britain’s biggest single site renewable power generator, is aiming to inspire local students to use their science and engineering know-how to come up with a workable idea that will help improve life in their community.

The Project Reinvent challenge is open to pupils aged 11 to 19 years at schools across Yorkshire, Teesside and North Lincolnshire.

The challenge is part of Drax’s community investment plan called ‘Project Reinvent’ – a programme of activity supporting schools and local projects. Inspired by the company’s own reinvention from a traditional coal-fired power station into a reliable new source of renewable energy, the programme aims to bring new energy to the people and organisations that can change its local area for good.

Drax’s Project Reinvent challenge is being supported by partner NYBEP and is already attracting interest from schools. It is a great example of an employer valuing engagement with their local community, with schools and helping equip the next generation with the science and engineering skills they’ll need to succeed.
