Renishaw's Virtual Engineering Workshops and Talks

Delivering FREE virtual STEM engagement for schools and colleges.

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

Even when life returns to some kind of normality, we 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.
