Curiosity in Action: Year 2 applications are open!

How could your youth group work with a scientist-in-residence to support young people’s confidence, resilience and wellbeing? Find out more and apply by 30th June.

Curiosity in Action is currently looking for youth groups across Scotland who are interested in connecting with scientists and helping in developing evidence on the role of creative STEM to support young people’s wellbeing.

This is part of the two-year Curiosity In Action programme which is being coordinated in partnership with YouthLink Scotland and funded by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC).

The programme will be pairing youth groups across Scotland with scientist-in-residence involved in STFC research in a collaborative action research process. Together they will trial activities, explore approaches to discover what works well and understand the impact this work has on young people.

This is the second year of the programme and the new youth groups will join a cohort of youth groups and scientists from year one who have been exploring this work together.

What is involved for new groups who are keen to be involved in year two?

The application has been kept light touch and they’re keen to hear from both youth workers who have never used STEM before with their youth group as well as those who have!

If you’re a scientist interested in being involved as a scientist-in-residence, get in touch!

Watch the information session about the opportunity here and check out the guidance.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on 30th June.
