Event description
For students at schools throughout South Wales, Renishaw's education outreach workshops provide an exciting hands-on experience of real-world engineering.  For teachers, they offer an ideal opportunity to pro-actively engage classes in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects.
Held at our state-of-the-art Fabrication Development Centre (FDC) in Miskin, our half-day and full-day workshops are completely FREE and can even be tailored to meet the needs of individual school curricula.
With strong core curriculum links, the workshops offer a range of different engineering STEM oriented activities including:
