Funder: Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng)
Thanks to the Royal Academy of Engineering (our main funder since 2012) we’ve been awarded an Ingenious Grant to run 5 more school zones in 2017 and 2018 covering different areas of engineering. The grant is also to run a public zone for families, 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, Kilogram Zone, Motor Zone, Apprentice Zone, Robotics Zone and Ampere Zone
In the next event, June 2017, RAEng are funding Smart Materials Zone and Candela Zone (a general engineering zone).
Wellcome 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 March 2017 Wellcome are funding the Artificial Body Zone.
Engineering Education Grant Scheme (IET and IMechE) – Production Zone and Energy Zone
Institution of Engineering and Technology – Communications Zone
Science and Technology Facilities Council – Measurement Zone, Detection Zone, Space Zone, Apprentice Zone, Energy Zone, Kelvin Zone.
UK Space Agency – Space for All Zone, Space Zone.
