Two teachers experiment with electronics

In 2019, INPEX and Questacon entered a 4-year partnership to engage young Australians in a conversation about energy, its use and the role it will play in the future. INPEX is a Japanese oil company that has projects in Australia.

This partnership aims to raise awareness of energy-related topics and increase energy literacy within Australian and Japanese communities. As a result of this partnership, we delivered energy shows, young person’s energy dialogues, teacher workshops and a Science Circus tour to Japan. Our ‘Your Energy’ videos explore questions about energy: Do you ever think about the energy we use every day? Is energy important to you? Can you live without it? Watch ‘Your Energy’ videos.

Questacon and INPEX champion the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals – focusing on SDG 7: ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all – to highlight the sustainable development challenges faced by the global community as we progress towards the year 2030.
