Richie Science Workshops

12 July 2016

Urenco USA employees have added value to the science curriculum in the area schools by teaching the Richie Enrichment Science Workshop for many years. This programme traditionally geared toward fifth grade students has been modified over the past two years to accommodate younger students attending a local summer enrichment program.

Melinda Allen, Communications and External Relations Specialist commented:

“The schools were very excited when we accepted their request to conduct the Richie Enrichment Science Workshops with the Kindergarten to third grade students enrolled in their summer enrichment program. We adjusted our curriculum to better suit younger learners and held a luncheon to train the volunteers on the changes.”

The schools were thrilled with the results and over 300 students attended the workshops.

Eric Carlson, UUSA employee and Richie volunteer said:

“It was a fun experience and the students benefited from this special science program. In fact, after the workshop many of the students said that they wanted to become scientists when they grow up.
