Primary and secondary schools in the UK can apply for funding to purchase equipment so that students can enjoy practical science, to run science enrichment projects in schools, or to enable students to participate in science events and competitions.
- Primary schools can apply for grants of up to £600.
- Secondary schools up to £1,000.
The funding is being made available through the Worshipful Company of Armourers and Brasiers, which is one of the leading charities in the UK supporting metallurgy and materials science education from primary school to postgraduate levels.
Funds are finite and will be allocated on a first come first served basis in each year starting on 1 April 2019 until all the funds are exhausted.
