The STEM Inspiration Awards

The 2019 STEM Inspiration Awards are now open for applications.

Do you know a STEM Ambassador whose enthusiasm for their subject is infectious? A unique STEM Club working in the community, or an outstanding project which increases access and inclusion in STEM? In particular, we are looking for the people and projects which make a real impact on young people, firing up interest in STEM subjects and careers.  The STEM Inspiration Awards recognise and celebrate individuals, organisations and clubs working to inspire young people in science, technology, engineering and maths.

This annual award scheme offers individuals and organisations from across the STEM education sector the chance to shine.

The closing date for applications is 10 September 2019.    Further information
