Case Studies

Schools partnership – Viridor, Element 6 & GKN

Four businesses in our region completed a year-long project with students at Matthew Arnold School to raise their awareness of engineering and careers in the industry. Volunteers from Abbott Diabetes Care, Viridor, Element 6 and GKN worked with selected groups of students to complete an engineering challenge related to their business area.

Programme support – Abbott Diabetes Care & Playforce

The Big Science Event (BSE) is a practical science investigation competition, which is open to all primary schools in Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. In 2018, 80 schools took part in BSE – that is over 11,000 children. Financial and in-kind support from competition sponsors Playforce and Abbott Diabetes Care has been integral to the growth of the competition over the past five years.
