Magic of Materials
This FREE three day residential course for pupils aged 14-15 (at the end of year 10 or equivalent) is being run again at St Paul’s School in London.
The course is run in partnership between the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining and St Paul’s School to bring the subject of materials science and engineering to life, show how materials have made a difference to the way we live our lives and highlight the broad range of exciting careers available in the field.
The residential aspect will give students time to absorb the information, get to know other people from across the country and be part of an academic ‘conference’ environment. Delegates will stay in the school’s boarding house with a full pastoral care package and all meals and refreshments are included.
This unique conference is open to 24 school pupils from across the UK. The course is free to attend and students may apply for a bursary of up to £100 to contribute towards travel costs. A maximum of two pupils from any one school may attend, but you may submit as many applications as you feel appropriate. Places will be allocated on the basis of a simple application form requiring a short statement from both pupils and teachers.
