The ERA Foundation is proud to be a supporter of In2Science’s excellent programme in providing social mobility opportunities for young people through engagement with the best HE science education courses.
In2scienceUK has provided a number of high impact programmes that empowers young people from low-income and disadvantaged backgrounds to gain practical insight and opportunities into the STEM sector. The work of In2scienceUK in encouraging a diverse range of people into Engineering is particularly important as young people from disadvantaged backgrounds face significant roadblocks to their progression in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education and careers.
Rebecca McKelvey, In2scienceUK CEO, explained that the organisation was “hugely proud to win the Queen’s Award that will enable In2scienceUK to further grow this high impact programme and ensure we leave no one behind. I would like to thank all of our supporters and volunteers who are committed to our mission and work with our young people year on year for their support. Together we are making the difference and empowering young people to achieve their potential”.
In 2020 In2science supported 567 young people in London, The South East, The South West and The East of England. This year they are expanding to the Midlands and the North West and will be supporting over 720 young people across England.
