Outreach grant recipient reports


As a condition of the grant, recipients are asked to submit a report and evaluation of their event, which may be used by potential applicants to help create their own outreach activity.  


The report should give a brief overview of how the event(s) went, and should include photographs where possible. The evaluation should give an overview of whether the aims and objectives of the event were met, and any learning outcomes that could be applied to future events.

 

Reports may be published on the Society’s website and, when appropriate, in the Society’s member’s magazine The Biochemist.

See our online photo gallery of activities and events that have been funded by the grant scheme, with pictures from science festivals, lab workshops and science shows.
