UK schools and colleges can apply for grants of up to £600 for small-scale projects or events linked to the teaching or promotion of physics and engineering to pupils aged 5-19. Grants can support a wide range of projects such as school-based science weeks, extracurricular activities, science clubs, careers events or a visit from a working physicist or engineer. Grants can be used for the following project-related purposes: materials/resources; transport; marketing and publicity; other purposes deemed proper by the judges; and supply cover (in certain circumstances). Previous projects to receive funding include Ampleforth College for a visit to Jodrell Bank Radio Observatory; and St John’s High School for a practical Rocketry workshop to design a water-propelled rocket. The funding is being made available through the Institute of Physics School Grant Scheme and the closing date for applications is the 1st February 2020.
