Workshops for South Wales schools

Renishaw's workshops provide students with an exciting hands-on experience of engineering, and offer teachers an ideal opportunity to engage classes in science, technology, engineering and maths subjects.

Meeting the needs of STEM curricula


For students at schools throughout South Wales, Renishaw's STEM 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 oriented activities including:

Technology teardown

Students will take apart a range of modern electronic devices, including cameras, phones, laptops and hard-drives. With the support of Renishaw engineers, students discover what's really inside them and how they work.

Design and build

Students will be provided with all the materials, facilities and guidance to experience end-to-end product manufacturing: 2D ideas to 3D models, scanning, CAD design and 3D printing.

Software design

Students get to code. BBC microbit programming, C++ control software coding for a powered buggy … hands on experience of software design in a real engineering environment.
