What are STEM E&E Grants?
We currently run three grant schemes:
(i) STEM E&E Grant Scheme (UK Wide) CURRENTLY CLOSED
Grants of up to £500 towards choosing a STEM activity listed in the online STEM Directories are being offered by the Royal Institution, funded by The Causeway Foundation. The scheme is designed to raise awareness and use of enrichment activities and to support your professional development, whilst enhancing the learning experience of STEM subjects in your school.
(ii) Mathematics Grant Scheme (UK wide) CURRENTLY CLOSED
Grants of up to £500 towards choosing a mathematical activity listed in the online STEM Directories are being offered by the Royal Institution, funded by The Clothworkers’ Foundation. The scheme is designed to raise awareness and use of enrichment activities and to support your professional development, whilst enhancing the mathematical experience in your school.
(iii) STEM E&E Grant schemes (schools in England only) CURRENTLY CLOSED
A limited number of grants of up to £500 are available for teachers of any STEM subject to have a STEM E&E activity take place at your school in 2013-4, to be chosen from those listed in these online STEM Directories. Please note, STEM E&E grants are currently only available for schools in England as our funder is the Department for Education. This round, we have a small number of grants to support activities to support computer science, and to encourage more girls to study physics. Otherwise, grants are drawn at random from the entrants. Grants are open to all state-funded schools in England.
What are the STEM Directories?
The STEM Directories are an easy way to find Enhancement and Enrichment (E&E) opportunities to support your science, engineering, design and mathematics teaching. Some schemes bring exciting activities into your school, others can provide a memorable day out for your students or a nationwide competition to help motivate your science club. They might involve bringing a real scientist, engineer or mathematician into the classroom, give your students access to equipment not readily available or simulate real-life applications of science and technology. Many schemes can provide supporting teaching materials to help get the most of the activity.
You can also read comments left by other teachers who have used the scheme and rate schemes that you have hosted. Click to search or browse schemes.
How do I make an enquiry or book an activity from the STEM Directories?
Please contact the individual scheme provider using the contact details given or follow the link given to their website. Unfortunately we cannot take bookings on the STEM Directories site.
How are activities selected for the directories?
Activity providers are free to submit suitable schemes to the site. Please note inclusion in the directories is not an endorsement of a particular company or their products. Schemes may provide general risk assessments upon request, however, these require modification to suit local conditions and teachers should always carry out an assessment in line with their own school health and safety policy.
How do I report an activity with out-of-date or inaccurate information?
Please get in touch with the details and we will be happy to investigate.
