Royal Society announces new funding for schools
The Royal Society has just announced that its 2019 round of Partnership Grants is now open. Since it started in November 2000, the Partnership Grants scheme has awarded over £1.3 million to over 800 schools and colleges, igniting enthusiasm for STEM in thousands of young people across the UK.
Partnership Grants of up to £3000 are available to schools and colleges to enable students, aged 5 – 18, to carry out science, technology, engineering or mathematics projects. The Royal Society is also looking to support projects on computing and data science.
The grants can be used to buy equipment or run a STEM investigation project in partnership with a STEM professional (research or industry).
The application process is a two stage process, and stage 1 will close at the end of February 2019.

Teachers of Physics award
The Teachers of Physics awards celebrate the success of secondary school physics teachers who have raised the profile of physics and science in schools.
We know that teachers contribute an immense amount to society and we wish to accord them the recognition they deserve.
With these awards, we honour teachers alongside distinguished research scientists and industrialists.
In this way we recognise that without dedicated teachers there would be no physics research community or technological base in society.
