I have been involved with CCI since its foundation by the late Tom Swan and it is a pleasure to continue to support its valuable work through Micropore some 20 years later.

Micropore have donated £2,000 received from the 2018 NEPIC (North East Process Industry Cluster) Innovation Award to the highly successful Children Challenging Industry (CCI) programme aimed at teachers and children in primary schools, and science-based manufacturing companies in the UK.
The CCI programme aims to improve the perception and understanding of science and industry by teachers and children. The programme combines classroom science lessons led by expert advisory teachers, with visits to industry, to enhance teachers’ confidence and tailored to meet the needs of the science curriculum.
