Ingenious, the Royal Academy of Engineering’s grant scheme for projects that engage the public with engineering and engineering have now opened applications for the next round of the scheme.
They are looking for projects that:
• inspire creative public engagement with engineering
• stimulate engineers to share their stories, passion and expertise in innovative ways with wider audiences
• develop engineers’ communication and engagement skills
• create debate between engineers and people of all ages to raise awareness of the diversity, nature and impact of engineering.
It is important that all Ingenious projects engage the public with engineering whilst also providing engineers with skills and opportunities in public engagement.
They are awarding between £3,000-£30,000 and accept proposals from engineers, universities, science and engineering communicators and engagement professionals, colleges and schools.
