Funded STEM research projects: What will your students investigate?

Schools are being funded by the Royal Society to bring STEM research and STEM professionals into their classrooms, allowing students to develop crucial skills and giving them career insights and inspiration

Pupils across the UK are being given the chance to take on interesting and engaging scientific research and investigations, working alongside STEM professionals to develop key skills, scientific mindsets, and a knowledge of what their future career might look like.

What’s more, schools are being given funding to help cover the expenses of this exciting work.

It is all part of the Royal Society’s Partnership Grants programme, which is now in its 20th year and is working at scale across the UK – there are currently more than 20,000 children and young people working with STEM professionals on 144 on-going projects across the country.
