Support for Science in Schools

Schools use our Grants for School Science to purchase equipment so that students can enjoy practical science, to run science enrichment projects in schools, or to enable students to participate in science events and competitions. Our industrial partner TWI The Welding Institute has devised a Welding With Chocolate activity to support Science, Design & Technology learning at KS1-4. You can download Teachers' Notes and Student Guidance at the bottom of this page.

"I had an amazing three days on the course.  It was a unique experience and I got so much out of it. The talks were fascinating and the practicals meant I could apply my new knowledge ... I now really want to study Materials Science at university."

Student's feedback from the Magic of Materials Summer School organised by St Paul's School sponsored by Armourers & Brasiers.

The grants are given in standard amounts - £600 for primary schools, £1,000 for secondary schools.

"One of our Upper Sixth Formers took part in the project last year. She said it was a real highlight of her time at school and one of the reasons she is now off to study Materials at Oxford. What a result!"
