Our partnership with URENCO began in 2013, working in partnership to develop new CREST resources, bringing key components of URENCO’s Richie programme to primary school-aged students.

URENCO’s Richie programme; an international educational programme aimed at teaching children about energy topics in an engaging and fun way. The Richie programme is a core element of URENCO’s school and education outreach and a key component of URENCO’s sustainability approach.

Our partnership has also seen further engagement with ‘Richie’ – the animated character who guides children through resources – with the creation of the Richie Lecture in 2014. This high-profile annual event allows the British Science Association and URENCO to inspire school children at key stages of their development during both primary and secondary school and further engage children with STEM activities.

We are currently working with URENCO on developing a new, Discovery Day resource in which students will explore how to enrich their classrooms. It will launch in autumn 2016.
