Celebrating ten years, the Rolls-Royce Science Prize offers teachers the opportunity to implement innovative teaching ideas in science and mathematics into their school or college.
All you need is to supply an action plan for the ideas you think would be most beneficial for your school or college.
Your plan needs to detail a teaching idea or project that meets a need in your establishment. The project can be in any area of science or practical application of mathematics. Previous finalists have developed ways of making science and mathematics teaching more dynamic including: a working roller coaster using friction and gravity, barefoot sensory pathways for children to explore using all five senses, creating resources to bring real-life science and mathematics into the classroom, alongside many other creative and inventive ideas.
You can enter the competition through one of two routes. Firstly, you can attend CPD through the National STEM Learning Centre and Network. Alternatively, if you are unable to attend a CPD activity, you can enter by filling in the entry form.
50 schools are shortlisted and awarded £1,000 each to help them implement their ideas. From this shortlist, nine schools are selected to receive further funding to fully develop and put into action their plan for developing excellence in science or mathematics.
So what are you waiting for? The application process is easy and the prize more than worth it! Start your application now.
Deadline for applications is 13 May 2016.
