Funder: Royal Academy of Engineering (RAENG)
Thanks to the Royal Academy of Engineering (our main funder 2014-2016) we’ve been awarded an Ingenious Grant to run 6 more zones in 2016 and 2017 covering all areas of engineering. The grant is also to produce marketing materials, to develop the website, and widen participation in the event to schools that receive few in person visits from STEM professionals.
RAENG are the UK’s national academy for engineering, and bring together engineers from all disciplines to promote excellence in the science, art and practice of engineering.
To date the RAENG have funded: Energy Zone, Health Zone, High Performance Zone, Transport Zone, Water Zone, Cities Zone, Apprentice Zone, Health Zone, Safety Zone, Transport Zone, Environment Zone, Fuel Zone, Robotics Zone, Metre Zone, Aerospace Zone, Environment Zone and Kilogram Zone.
Funder: Wellcome Trust
We’re running 8 zones on biomedical engineering themes between 2014 and 2017, thanks to a People Award from the Wellcome Trust.
The Wellcome Trust are dedicated to achieving extraordinary improvements in human and animal health. They support the brightest minds in biomedical research and the medical humanities. Wellcome’s public engagement grants are intended to promote interest, excitement and debate around science and society. With this grant we hope to show that engineering is not just about Maths and Physics. Biology and Chemistry play a very large part too.
In November 2016 they are funding the Diagnosis Zone.
The UK Space Agency is responsible for all strategic decisions on the UK civil space programme and provide a clear, single voice for UK space ambitions.
A key goal in the current UK space strategy is to increase awareness among the general public of the UK’s space programme and of the role that space plays in everyday life.
