Y cynllun

Nod cynllun grantiau Cymru Wythnos Genedlaethol Gwyddoniaeth a Pheirianneg (NSEW), a ariennir gan Lywodraeth Cymru, yw helpu ysgolion a sefydliadau Cymru i drefnu digwyddiadau a gweithgareddau i ddathlu’r wythnos arbennig hon.

Byddwn yn darparu £200 i ysgolion a hyd at £350 i sefydliadau i’w helpu i gynnal digwyddiad neu weithgaredd yn ystod NSEW.

Yr unig beth sydd ei angen yw syniad am ddigwyddiad neu weithgaredd y gallwch ei gynnal yn ystod yr Wythnos. Am syniadau ac ysbrydoliaeth ar gyfer gweithgareddau, cliciwch yma i weld ein canllawiau a mwy.
