World Space Week Grants: October 4 - 10, 2013

Small grants to support science centres and museums to celebrate World Space Week

World Space Week is a global celebration of space science and technology, running each year from 4th-10th October. The week was set by the United Nations General Assembly and is celebrated with events, activities and exhibitions in countries across the world ( This year's theme is 'Exploring Mars, Discovering Earth'.

Building on the success of last year's World Space Week Grants we again made 10 small grants available, supported by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), to help centres and museums celebrate World Space Week.

We are delighted to announce the 10 centres who have been awarded a grant are:
