Wycliffe, said:“We hold the STEM days for three reasons. Firstly our sixth formers are teaching lessons. They will learn more about themselves today than probably any other two or three weeks of the year, helping them to build their confidence and grow as individuals. “With the companies who come to help us we’re helping to inspire the engineers and scientists of the future. Finally, we love delivering science and it gives us an opportunity to do the stuff we love.” A spokesman for Renishaw said: “There is a recognised skills shortage in the engineering and science sectors

and it is vitally important that children are regularly exposed to the variety of exciting careers that are available to those who study STEM subjects. “Renishaw aims to enthuse and inspire children of all ages about the amazing possibilities for those with an interest in science, maths, engineering and the arts. “We take a very long-term view regarding our significant investment in education outreach programmes, recognising that there are no short-term fixes for the skills shortages that the technology sector faces” l
