Grants of up to £600 are available to support the teaching of science in primary schools.

The Royal Society of Chemistry’s Primary Science Teaching Empowerment Fund is designed to help schools plan and organise collaborative projects or events aimed at improving science teaching at primary level, and developing leadership skills in teachers and technicians.

The funding will cover event costs and up to one day of teaching so that teachers can plan the project or event.

Applications are particularly encouraged from schools that are in hard-to-reach areas, either due to geography or social disadvantage.

The closing date for applications is 24 March 2023 at 9am.
