UK schools and colleges can apply for grants of up to £600 from the Institute of Physics for small-scale projects or events linked to the teaching or promotion of physics and engineering to pupils aged 5 – 19. Grants can be used to support a wide range of projects.
This can include organising a school based science week or extracurricular activities such as a science club. Alternatively, schools and colleges may want to use the funding to organise a careers event or a visit from a working physicist or engineer.
Previous projects to receive funding include:
- Ampleforth College for a Visit to Jodrell Bank Radio Observatory
- St John’s High School for a Practical Rocketry workshop to design a water propelled rocket.
The closing date for applications is the 1st February 2018.
