Royal Society of Chemistry



Enhanced Equipment Grant


These funds are awarded against bids for equipment that cannot be purchased through a school’s mainstream teaching budget and which would enrich the learning experience of students in either primary (science) or secondary (chemistry) studies.  


In particular, this would be for equipment that supports delivery of the practical aspect of chemistry education and an application will be enhanced by a demonstration of the diversity of application of the equipment within and between student cohorts.


The application will be made by a teacher at a primary or secondary school for sums ranging from £100-£500.

Discovery Friday is back for 2016, and your students can be part of it.


We are looking for 50 projects, undertaken by 11-14 year olds over about a day (10 hours) in a science, technology, engineering or maths (STEM) subjects to exhibit at the Discovery Friday showcase. It is NOT a competition, so we are looking for all sorts of people to get involved.


This will take place on 18th March at The Big Bang Fair and aims to encourage a wide range of schools, clubs and groups to attend with students of all abilities from across the UK to inspire their peers to have a go at practical STEM project work.


The general age is 11-14 BUT this year we can take students aged 9 and 10....

SETPOINT Hertfordshire










My name is Helen Spencer and from the 1st April, I will be taking over as Director of the charity.  Pauline Beszant will continue to work with us three days per week, supporting schools with Ambassador activities and networking events, in close collaboration with Janice Graham-Wilson.  We also have a new member of staff in the office; Sally Moore joined us to provide part-time admin support on the 1st March.


Most of you will already know me, as I’ve been at SETPOINT for over 17 years, working on the many projects and schemes that we offer as an educational charity.  Our aim remains the same: to inspire young people about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics by providing memorable learning experiences, with the help of STEM Ambassadors, role models in industry.  


Thank you for your continued support!
