They expect to make no more than 35 small awards, and no more than 15 large awards in total in this final round. This means that only the strongest ideas will have a full assessment and they strongly recommend applicants to read these pages carefully before they make their application.

Science is all about discussion, debate and curiosity. It is about asking questions about the world around us and within us and exploring how to answer those questions. Participating in science activities, and asking these questions, can contribute to important changes for children and young people such as increased confidence and self-esteem, improved relationships with others, team-working skills and, simply, a chance to have fun!
