Science in Schools Grant Scheme – 29th January 2021 (UK)

The Royal Institution has announced that it has re-opened its Science in Schools days grant scheme.  Through the grant scheme schools can apply for a visit from a Royal Institution professional presenter worth £800.  The Science in Schools days are designed to support children’s science education, meet CPD requirements for teachers, and engage families.

Each fully funded visit includes:

  • Two school shows for students, designed to support the curriculum at KS1, KS2 or KS3
  • A CPD session for teachers, using interactive demonstrations to build the skills and confidence to inspire children with practical science
  • An after school or evening community show for a family audience, to generate support for science in the home. The community show can also be ticketed to raise funds for future activities at your school
  • The option of a Covid-safe alternative package that ensures social distancing throughout, and substitutes the community show for an additional student show for a third-year group bubble

The Royal Institution also welcome applications from SEND schools, and bespoke adaptations can be made to ensure accessibility for all students.

Funded visits would need to take before 30th September 2021.

The closing date for applications is the 29th January 2021.
