Do you have a great idea for bringing research alive in school?
Partnership Grants of up to £3000 are available to schools to enable students, aged 5 – 18, to carry out science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) projects.
"I have learned so much and the students have been thoroughly fired up by the scientific process."
Jennie Hargreaves, Lockerbie Academy, Lockerbie
Projects needs to be investigative and supported by teachers and STEM professionals (research or industry) working in partnership. They should:
- Deliver a better understanding of the latest developments in STEM;
- Improve perceptions of those working in STEM professions;
- Give students pride and ownership in STEM from participation in the investigative process.
Since it started in November 2000, the scheme has awarded over £1.3 million to over 770 schools and colleges, igniting enthusiasm for STEM in thousands of young people across the UK. Since 2010, 88% of awarded Partnership Grants Partners reported that they would apply again.
