The STEM Directories provide information about ways to support and extend science, engineering, design and mathematics teaching. Some schemes bring exciting activities into schools, others can provide a memorable day out for students or a nationwide competition to help motivate your science club. They might involve bringing a real scientist, engineer or mathematician into the classroom, give students access to equipment not readily available or simulate real-life applications of science and technology. Many schemes can provide supporting teaching materials to help get the most of the activity.

Grants of up to £500 were made available for schools and colleges in March 2013 and a further round of grants is planned for later in 2013. For more information about the grants and eligibility please visit www.stemdirectories.org.uk/teacher-faqs/
