Renishaw announces Super Science winnerGloucestershire-based engineering company Renishaw (www.renishaw.com) has awarded £10,000 to Southville Primary School in Bristol as the winner of its Super Science competition (held in collaboration with the Bristol Post newspaper).

The school will use the prize money to purchase a range of science equipment, including circuits, magnets, microscopes and weather stations.

Chris Pockett, head of communications at Renishaw, said: “There are so many ways in which science and engineering companies can support schools and nurture pupils’ interest in STEM subjects.

“Research by King’s College London shows that children develop an interest in science very early on — before the age of 14. To encourage this interest, schools need resources that they might not always have; this is where engineering and science companies can truly make a difference.”

He added that, as a strong advocate of work-place training and development, Renishaw currently employs over 100 manufacturing, engineering and software apprentices.

“By getting involved in initiatives such as the Super Science competition, Renishaw is investing in the engineers of the future,” he said.
