The Royal Institution runs two ‘enrichment and enhancement’ (E&E) grant schemes for UK schools. Grants of up to £500 are for UK-registered state schools to host a STEM E&E maths or STEM activity selected from the STEM Directories. Activities listed on the Directories are described as ‘enrichment and enhancement’ because they are events or experiences that enrich or enhance (go beyond) the school curriculum and cannot easily be delivered with standard school resources. The schemes are designed to integrate STEM E&E activities (such as shows, talks and workshops) into school practice and to support teachers’ professional development.
There are currently no grant schemes running. If you would like to hear from us when the next scheme opens, please sign up to the Royal Institution’s Education newsletter.
