In order to get more young people interested in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), we partner with institutions in Germany, the Netherlands, the UK and the USA. Two of our key partnerships are with the Science Museum in the UK and the British Science Association.
Partnership with Science Museum
Urenco is the Major Sponsor of the Science Museum’s interactive gallery, Wonderlab: The Equinor Gallery.
The gallery, which opened in October 2016, features more than 50 immersive exhibits and demonstrations that inspire curiosity and creativity among the thousands of visitors who are welcomed by the Science Museum each year.
In addition to sponsoring the gallery, we exhibit at their Teacher Zone where teachers can get inspiration for engaging STEM resources and activities.

Partnership with British Science Association
Since 2013, Urenco has worked with the British Science Association (BSA) to encourage young people to engage with STEM subjects through its project-based CREST Awards initiative.
In collaboration, we’ve developed two resources:
Spinning Solutions (aimed at 7-11 year olds) – through group work and interactive activities, students can learn about the concept of separation and its purpose in everyday life.
Enrich my Classroom (aimed at 11-14 year olds) – students can investigate a variety of topics, including coding, electricity, magnetism, ergonomics and nanotechnology, and develop exciting new ways to enrich their classroom.
To maximise the success of our resources, in 2018 we supported the BSA with their international expansion by launching the Enrich my Classroom resource in the Netherlands. The resource was piloted in Dutch schools local to our site in Almelo before being made available on the BSA’s website for other schools to download. In 2020, we are continuing this work by launching the resource in Germany and the USA.
