Funded School Visits Programme
Are costs preventing your school from visiting We The Curious? If you are a Bristol school we may be able to help. Thanks to generous donations from local businesses and individuals, we set up our Funded School Visits Programme to support Bristol schools that would love to develop their science learning outside the classroom but lack the financial means. Application deadlines are 1 June and 1 November each year, and funding may be provided for part, or the entirety of your visit.

Funded by the Science and Technology Facilities Council, this collection of videos and resources for secondary science teachers features scientists and engineers talking about their work and how it relates to what students learn at school – from classroom science to research to innovative solutions.
