Thank you to our funders!

The kit and event delivery for the core project is funded by the UK Space Agency, in partnership with Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) part of UK Research and Innovation.

This is a major project for us, and we’re keen to develop lots of fantastic resources and reach as many people as possible! As well as the core project funders, we are also so grateful to the Sovereign Network Group for providing an EDI Community Microgrant supporting us to reach young people with physical and learning difficulties, the Adrian Swire Charitable Trust for enabling us to develop locally-relevant resources and run additional events for community groups, and the FUTURES Festival (via the University of Exeter and the University of Plymouth) to fund resource development and school events highlighting local research.
