International and non-state-maintained schools

Although spaces are limited, the I’m a Scientist and I’m an Engineer activities are fully funded for UK, state-maintained schools and colleges, thanks to the generosity of our funders.

For schools that don’t meet this criteria, such as international or non-state maintained schools, we ask for a contribution to the running costs of the project for each class that takes part.


£150 (+VAT) per class

What does that include?

For each class taking part you will get a teacher pack with resources for running the activity, and log in details for 40 students. You will be able to book one live chat session for each class.

Our events are normally oversubscribed, so whilst we can’t guarantee there will be space we will do our best to accommodate you.  

For schools outside the UK

If you’re based outside the UK we will not post paper copies of teacher packs, instead we will email you digital versions of the teacher resources and student log in cards.  Chats are available during the times of a UK school day (approx 9 am – 4 pm GMT/BST). We will try to accommodate chats outside of these time, but we cannot guarantee it.
