To help celebrate National Science and Engineering week, the British Science Association, with funding from the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, is providing grants for schools in challenging circumstances to organise their own science and engineering events.
Two types of grants are available:
- Kick Start grants of up to £300 for schools to run an activity during British Science Week
- Kick Start More grants of up to £700 for school to host a science event or activity which involves students and people from the local community.
The community can comprise of families/carers, members of local community groups, local businesses and local press. To be eligible, schools must have either a high proportion of pupils from ethnic minority backgrounds (over 30%); have a high proportion of pupils eligible for pupil premium; and/or be a small school in a remote and rural location.
The closing date for applications is 12 noon on the 13th November 2017.
