The Biochemical Society has announced that its Outreach Grants programme has re-opened for applications.
Grants of up to £1,000 are available to increase participation in the molecular biosciences at school level and the community through engagement activities. Within school projects the Society is looking to support projects with emphasis on molecular bioscience for upper secondary school age audiences and above. For primary school age audiences, the focus can be on biology or on all sciences.
The type of events funded could include:
- Activities for a science club
- Workshops for students or teachers
- Lectures from research scientists (including PhD students and post-doc’s).
Past projects include Science Week:
Detective Sciences – an event that formed part of the Science week activities at Abercanaid Community School, Merthyr Tydfil. The focus of the event was centred on promoting scientific investigation, scientific thinking and enhancing English language skills.
