Neon is an exciting new website, designed to bring STEM to life through real-world engineering, connecting the user with STEM experiences near them of which you will find STEMworks are listed. They also provide access to hundreds of inspiring career resources.
Neon are now offering £300-700 bursaries to schools who work with young people who are under-represented in the Engineering profession. This is to help these schools overcome barriers to participating in activities listed on Neon and improve the impact for their students.
Any school that meets the EngineeringUK EDI Criteria are eligible to apply.
The bursary can be spent flexibly, for example on:
- Paying for a Neon activity
- Teacher cover
- To overcome digital poverty through purchase of digital devises or data
- Resources to support the young people to participate in the activity
- Hiring or buying specialist equipment to complement a Neon activity
The next round of applications will be released in September. For more information, click here.
