Shell NXplorers Program

Delivered by Scitech since 2018, the Shell NXplorers program aims to empower our current students to become the leaders of tomorrow. It develops smart thinkers to solve tomorrow’s global challenges, including the demand for more and cleaner energy.

Students are tasked to solve the focus question of “How can we be more sustainable with food, water and energy in our school and community?” and equipped with the vital skills of critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, communication and collaboration to do so.

Working in teams, students develop sustainability ideas, models and research projects to describe how they believe they can create positive change in their community.

They present their ideas to their school community, talking through their solutions with teachers, parents and their peers. Students have also presented their ideas as part of the Perth Science Festival and the 5,000 parents, children and general public who visit.

Student-led solutions have included building or revitalising school vegetable gardens to grow produce for school canteens, introducing compost bins at school, reducing waste from food packaging at the canteen, using solar energy to cook food and designing vertical gardens.
