Warwick Manufacturing Group should be congratulated for kick-starting an initiative to reverse the lack of interest in engineering shown by school children. Getting Parametric Technology to put its CAD/CAM systems into more than fifty schools will attack the problem at source: children were using old equipment, making engineering look less interesting than the PCs they play on at home, and stifling their creativity. Teachers’ enthusiastic response to such technology is encouraging. The surprise is that so few industrial companies seem ready to help.
