Rolls-Royce Science Prize

The Rolls-Royce Science Prize is an annual awards programme that helps teachers implement science and mathematics teaching ideas in their schools and colleges. The awards programme is open to all schools and colleges in the UK.

You can enter the competition through two routes:

Firstly, you can attend CPD through the National STEM Learning Centre. The action plan you prepare as part of your professional development can be submitted for the science or mathematics prize.

This plan should outline an idea for a science or mathematics teaching project that meets a need in your school or college. The project can be in any area of science or the practical application of mathematics. It can be a new idea or a development of something you have been working on for some time. The most important thing is to be innovative and come up with unusual ideas.

If you are unable to attend CPD you can enter the Science Prize by completing an entry form. The deadline for entries is 17 May 2019.

Each year 50 schools are awarded a £1,000 Special Merit Award with nine schools selected from this 50 to gain additional money to put their project into action.

You can read a selection of blogs from schools who have taken part in the Rolls-Royce Science Prize, and hear about their experiences.

For over a decade the Rolls-Royce Science Prize has rewarded excellence in science teaching across the full spectrum of teaching, from special education needs to high ability pupils. You can watch a video on YouTube celebrating 10 years of the Science Prize.
