Renishaw opens new STEM center

3D printing company Renishaw has opened a new science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) education facility at its headquarters, Gloucestershire, UK.

Plans are for the center to be a space for local schoolchildren to learn more about STEM subjects and associated careers, the company said.

“We are committed to working with students from a wide variety of different backgrounds to encourage more diversity in the engineering industry,” said Rebecca Bound, early careers STEM Outreach Officer at Renishaw. “The new centre will provide schools with access to additional workshop equipment and offer interactive sessions on STEM topics, with the added benefit of being located within a site that can showcase real-life engineering experiences.”
