Richie and URENCO
URENCO’s Richie programme has the ultimate aim of developing the next generation of scientists and engineers to ensure we have the skilled work-force needed in the UK across a variety of sectors.
The principles of STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths) are constantly present in our day-to-day lives.
By studying STEM subjects, we learn how to:
- Keep the lights on, our kettles boiling and homes heated.
- Design and build bridges, skyscrapers, aeroplanes and machinery.
- Develop medicines and vaccines to improve people’s health.
- Enhance everyday technology to ensure it’s up to speed with our evolving world.
Through Richie, we motivate schoolchildren to cultivate an interest in the STEM subjects.
