The Grant Schemes: Science Grant Scheme
We understand the frustrations of endless forms and complicated applications, especially for teachers, and so aim to provide a quick and simple application process, with the minimum amount of paperwork! This allows teachers the freedom to do what they want and to focus on the important thing: providing real opportunities and experiences for the children to understand the value of, and take part in, investigative science. There are many ways to inspire pupils and make the teaching of the curriculum more fun - what you choose to do is up to you. Projects can include:
• Science Equipment
• Science Visits; both in and out of school
• Science Weeks; what better way to highlight the importance of science than with a hands-on, action packed week!
• Science Subscriptions; to provide help in making the science curriculum more relevant and exciting Gardening Resources; a great way to get children working outside
• Grounds for Science; to regenerate school grounds
