The Ri maintains the STEM Directories, an online catalogue of activities that enhance the teaching of science, engineering and maths. Teachers can search the Directories by subject, age and location and can use the reviews left by other teachers to help them choose an activity.

The activities in the Directories are 'Enhancement and Enrichment', or E&E, activities - those that enrich or go beyond the school curriculum. They include shows, talks, workshops, challenges, museum visits, CPD sessions for teachers and more.


The Ri offers £500 grants for schools to take part in E&E activities from the STEM Directories. Grants are awarded twice a year and are generously supported by The Clothworkers' Foundation and The Causeway Foundation.

The grant schemes open in October (maths scheme) and January (STEM scheme). Sign up to the Royal Institution’s Education Newsletter to recieve announcements on when the schemes open.

Activity providers

Providers of E&E activities can register to list their activity on the STEM Directories. Activity descriptions are reviewed by the Ri before being published.
