The In2scienceUK programme offers Year 12/BTEC Level 3 Year 1 students the chance to gain real-world experience, expert insights and practical support to help kickstart their career pathway into an area of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). The aim of this programme is to provide young people from low-income and disadvantaged backgrounds an opportunity to gain practical insight into the STEM sector as well as the knowledge and confidence to progress to university.
The 2021 programme will offer a unique hybrid scheme which will give students the opportunity for both a virtual and in-person STEM experiences – spread throughout a 3-week period in August 2021 – connecting students to expert scientists, engineers, technologists, and researchers, where they can take part in their own research tasks and work with cutting edge innovation. The programme is fully funded, so is free for students, and a bursary can be provided by In2scienceUK to meet any travel costs.
Year 12/BTEC Level 3 Year 1 students will be able to connect with like-minded university students as well as experts from all areas of STEM, providing them with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to take the next step in their journey towards a future career in STEM. The deadline for all applications is 9th April 2021.
