Our Catalysts are a network of individuals and organisations who encourage the next generation to engage with science, technology, engineering and mathematics. By making a financial gift, Catalysts ensure that our activities can be enjoyed by all – whatever their background, through our touring education programme, Generation Science, and our community engagement programme, working with disadvantaged groups.
Funds raised from Catalysts are primarily used to support young people in areas of disadvantage.
