The workshops take place close to our global sites and are tailored for students in primary school. They fit well with science or STEM focused activities.
The workshops cover a wide range of topics related to STEM, climate and environmental responsibilities including the science behind uranium enrichment and nuclear power generation. An important sustainable source of energy, recognised by governments globally.
We run our workshops with schools located near our Urenco sites please email Richie@urenco.com for more information. Even if we cannot host a local workshop, there may be other options we can discuss.
To provide a comprehensive overview of nuclear energy for students, including how it works, and how it can support our net zero ambition, we have several resources you can use - download our animation and fun facts section in our Students’ page and view more resources below.
We have made engaging resources that help students to understand energy and how they can play a part in solving the climate challenge. You can find them on our Richie for students page, which is designed with young people in mind and includes fun facts, quizzes, videos and our Richie game app.Richie for students
We also support the Science Museum's Wonderlab+, a fantastic new website for children and families designed to increase their science capital and interest in STEM related careers. Visit the Wonderlab+ website for quizzes, videos and resources to engage students with exciting science content.Visit Wonderlab+
Urenco created free digital resources in collaboration with the British Science Association (BSA) as part of the CREST scheme for student-led project work in STEM subjects.
Spinning Solutions (aimed at 7- to 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- to 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. This workshop is also available in Dutch: Classroom2030.

Urenco’s commitment to promoting STEM education and fostering the next generation of innovative thinkers could not be achieved without our education partners. We work with institutions in The Netherlands, the UK, and the USA to provide engaging and enriching opportunities for young people with access to world-class educational resources and experiences that inspire curiosity and creativity in STEM.
