Physics Research in School Environments programme

The School of Physics and Astronomy's Physics Research in School Environments (PRiSE) programme offers school students the opportunity to experience authentic scientific research over a sustained period of time within their school. Students and teachers taking advantage of the programme are supported by active researchers who specialise in the field of the research projects we offer.

The programme is run over the first two terms of the academic year and sign up for the following year occurs before the summer break.

Project allocations for schools in the academic year 2019/2020 are now open (deadline Thu 4 July)
