An award programme for 15 teachers and teaching assistants, each of whom will receive £5000 to develop great ideas that encourage creativity and problem-solving in maths and computer science.
Deadline 24th February 2020
Nesta are launching Classroom Changemakers, an award programme to unearth, celebrate and share great ideas from teachers and teaching assistants which aim to give young people the opportunity to be creative and solve problems in maths and computer science. They will award 15 teachers, or teaching assistants, £5,000 each to their school or college to celebrate their work.
Through these awards Nesta aims to:
- Reward and celebrate the great work of teachers and teaching assistants.
- Better understand how teachers and teaching assistants are giving young people the opportunity to be creative and solve problems in maths and computer science.
- Share this understanding and the bright ideas unearthed by the awards with other educators.
In April 2020 the award winners will be invited to attend an event to celebrate their award.
Nesta are looking to award teachers or teaching assistants who have developed and tried out an idea in their classroom which aims to give young people the opportunity to solve problems and/or be creative in maths or computer science.
They are particularly keen to hear from applicants whose idea also connects maths or computer science to real-world problems and aims to inspire a diverse range of students to engage with and enjoy these subjects.
The deadline for applications is 24th February 2020
