Renishaw's virtual engineering assemblies

Delivering FREE virtual STEM engagement for schools and colleges.

During the pandemic, Renishaw have been able to adapt their STEM outreach programmes to offer virtual delivery of workshops and talks to continue to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers.

Even as life returns to some kind of normality, they will still continue to offer virtual engagements (alongside face-to-face sessions) as these can often be scheduled into a school's hectic timetable more easily.


Minimum of 10 participants, maximum of 1,000 participants.


Less than 1 hour
