RAS200 Community Meeting - Manchester
Thu 17 November 2016, 10:00 – 14:00 GMT
What could you or your organisation do with £100,000?
To mark the Royal Astronomical Society's 200th anniversary the RAS has £1 million pounds to give away to allow the RAS to work in partnership with charities and organisations that we have never worked with before (so don't worry if your organisation doesn't traditionally offer STEM opportunities) to develop new and innovative ideas that will help engage a new audience with astronomy or geophysics.
Want to know more about how you could apply? Want to know more about the scheme and meet some of the scientists that you could get to work with? Pop along to our community meeting to find out all the answers to your questions!
