The team all arrived bright eyes and bush tailed, unloaded all their gear and set up in good time for the start of the day. This happened really smoothly as a result of the pre-planning that bydesign staff undertook in advance. The quality and range of activities was superb and the children were all engaged and learnt so much. I was also impressed with the professional, speedy manner in which the company responded to our request for all the relevant safeguarding information. With the TAs working alongside bydesign staff, teachers had a very productive day working on curriculum development, a ‘win-win’ situation all round!

A really high quality programme, excellent resources and Ellie was truly amazing- we have had this company in before but never as amazing as this and I can only attribute this to Ellie and her passion and commitment to the programme!
All staff really friendly, enthusiastic and eager to help and get ‘stuck in with the children’. A good link to past life (tape player). All children came out saying how excited they were. We’ve had a fantastic time! Thank you.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for delivering the two excellent Energy Quest workshops for my Year 8 students yesterday. They were informative and interactive and kept my students engaged.
As you saw for yourself, the students thoroughly enjoyed taking part and their feedback was that they learned a lot about engineering and careers in the sector.

Just wanted to say thanks for the great event and amazing experience you guys provided for the students. They had a brilliant time and were made up with taking home a trophy. It was a fantastic day, thanks again!

The teams we have had from Learn by Design have always been good but without a doubt, this team were the best we have had. They were really well organised and enthusiastic and made my job really easy. A number of our staff thought the day was brilliant.
Thank you on behalf of all the staff for such an enjoyable and worthwhile event.

I just wanted to thank all at Energy Quest for today’s STEM-Engineering Workshop for Year 7 students. We had Mark Baggott who did a sterling job and all the students learnt and engaged well. Please pass on the school’s gratitude to him plus also the team who delivered last week’s sessions to Year 8 students.
I think we now have some bussing young engineers in the making!

On behalf of everyone at Todholm Primary School, we’d like to commend the workshops that were delivered to our P7 children. The content and delivery were outstanding and the workshops were enjoyed by staff and children alike. Both teachers were extremely impressed with how much was covered in a two hour period. We were also able to share with our parents and the response from them has been very positive too.
Lynne McGinn - Head Teacher, Todholm Primary School
Thank you for providing The Dukeries Academy with such an engaging and useful workshop.
It was fantastic to have you support our exciting two days and delivering such a fantastic workshop. It makes such a difference for the students to be able to get 'hands on' and I know that they really enjoyed programming the robots and seeing them come to life!
Your team of colleagues were professional and perfect role models throughout. Please pass my thanks on to them also.
We sincerely hope that you will be back to visit us again sometime soon!
