Children from across Kent and East Sussex had a cracking time hunting for eggs at Dungeness B visitor centre over the Easter holidays.

As well as searching for chocolate treats, the youngsters also looked for clues for words relating to electricity and nuclear power.

Rubie-Rose, aged 8, from Eastbourne said: “My favourite part of the day was the egg-drop challenge where we had to think of ways to protect the eggs when they were dropped from height. I like science and technology at school so I really enjoyed that.”

2018 has been named as the Year of Engineering and Dungeness B power station is playing its part by running a programme of activities throughout the year to encourage children to take up science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects.

EDF Energy is also running a Pretty Curious campaign to encourage more girls to consider a career in engineering.
