Pod Team

Find out more about the Pod team and the work they do to bring all of the resources to life.

Meet the team

Robyn

Robyn is 'Mummy Pod' - she's been working on the Pod since the very beginning and is very passionate about it. She loves her job as Digital Education Programme Manager as it means she gets to channel her creativity, from thinking of new ideas to seeing them developed and launched on the Pod, and hearing what teachers and students think of them. She also enjoys that she gets to work with lots of interesting people across EDF Energy and our partner organisations, like the Met Office and the BTO. Robyn's favourite character is Busta - he's a cheeky monkey with quite a naughty sense of humour!

Emily

Anyone who’s played the Power Patrol game will know Education Specialist Emily well – she’s at the top of the leaderboard (she's been banned from entering high scores now!). And, although she's at the top of Power Patrol, her favourite Pod resource is Greedy Guzzlers because it's fun and everyone is always surprised by the order of the most energy-guzzling appliances. Emily is a big fan of upcycling, and if she could make anything she wanted with recycled plastic bottles, it would be a greenhouse to grow tomatoes. She’s conscious of her household’s energy usage, but with a 5-year-old who loves playing in the mud and a baby, she couldn’t do without her washing machine!

Fiona

Fiona is the newest member of the team. Despite being a self-confessed 'health freak', she raids our chocolate drawer more than anyone else. Fiona loves working on the Pod, she's passionate about sustainable living and making small changes everyday to reduce her impact on the environment e.g. she has recently swapped shower gels and pump soaps for bar soap to reduce plastic waste - and she still smells fresh...kind of! :)

Victoria

Victoria is the Director over at Cream Content. We've worked with Victoria for years and she has helped us develop some of our favourite lesson plans, games and campaign materials. You might also get replies to some of your emails to 'contact us' from Victoria.

Izzy

Education specialist Izzy has worked on the Pod for over three years and it’s reinforced for her just how important sustainability is. She loves that the Pod can show everyone – not just young people – about the changes we can make in our daily lives that really do make a difference. Izzy says she tries to reduce waste by planning meals in advance, and buying fruit and veg without packaging whenever she can. She admits she can’t do without her kettle though! And what about the big Pod question – does she like Busta, Pong or Zingy best? ... Busta (sorry Zingy!) - it's all about his adventures with Pong exploring energy and waste!
