The School has received 3 student experience grants in the Spring 2019 round:
- STEM Stories: a storytelling series of student journeys (£2,500)
- Through the medium of storytelling, this project aims to build a supportive environment to see what we share, what our fears and dreams are and the monsters we have conquered along the way.
- Electronic chess board for treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) (£230)
- Design and fabrication of electronic chess boards interfaced with artificial intelligence and chess engine. The whole idea of prototyping this electronic board is to explore the application of chess to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
- The Playable Periodic Table Workshop - Unleashing the Elements (£1,268)
- The project aims to deliver a workshop based on newly developed card game promoting chemistry to primary schools in targeted areas.
The Student Experience Grants are one-off contributions of up to £5,000 to support innovative projects and initiatives that will enhance students’ social, academic, intellectual, entrepreneurial, sporting or cultural development.
Alumni-funded grants have supported projects at the University for many years. Student Experience Grants replaced Innovation Initiative Grants (IIG) in summer 2018.
