Eurofins supports Sutton students’ science aspirations


A Wolverhampton food-testing company has supported the career aspirations of students at Sutton Coldfield College with a £1,000 donation of science resources. Eurofins has supplied the college with a huge selection of glass and plastic containers, beakers and sample tubes to support their students’ practical and laboratory work.

Rachel Tarplee, Department Director at the college said: “This generous donation from Eurofins means our students are better able to carry out many more tests and experiments in our science laboratories. The use of industry standard equipment will make their practical sessions more realistic and it replicates what they will use when they enter the world of work.

“The company sent us hundreds of different containers and pieces of equipment which the college can make use of for a long time to come.”

Sutton Coldfield College offers vocational, practical science courses from pre-GCSE to higher education level as well as A Levels in biology, chemistry and physics.

Melissa Lane, general manager at Eurofins, said: “We’re delighted to be able to donate the laboratory equipment, and to know it will be used by the next generation of future scientists.

“We want to encourage greater take up of science subjects at all levels of education and being able to support the college in this way is part of achieving that objective.”
