£15,000 available to highlight science and technology achievements
The Science and Technology Facilities (STFC) Council’s Public Engagement Spark Awards have returned.
Awards of up to £15,000 are available to schools and STFC scientists and engineers, facility users, museums, science communicators, and amateur astronomy groups to:
- encourage and support high-quality public engagement activities that highlight STFC’s science and technology
- introduce STFC science and technology to new audiences
- highlight the achievements of STFC science and technology, demonstrating the excitement of research and the value of STEM to the UK
Every application must include a researcher in an STFC-funded area of science or technology. While these researchers often play an active role in delivering the engagement activities, this is not mandatory – they may act as an advisor on the scientific content.
The closing date for applications is Thursday 19 April 2018.
