The Royal Society signs off Snore Pupil Research Project

With overall funding in excess of £15,000 financing the project, a 3-day trip to London in July 2023 to take part in The Young Researcher Zone and the upcoming 3-day trip to London next week to take part in The Royal Society Student Conference, Snore has been a huge success and The Royal Society have now signed off the project. Yay!

Elizabeth Chambers, Royal Society Schools Engagement Officer gave the green light this month and told us, “I am delighted to see that the project has been such a success… Thank you so much for all your time and hard work in running this. It has been lovely working with you.”

We now move into an extension phase with an invite from The Royal Society to apply for a further £1500 to carry out the work of our pupil research leaders, The Dream Team.
