About: Lightyear Foundation is a science education charity working to ensure that every child has access to good quality science education. It’s flagship project, Sensory Science, breaks down the barriers for disabled children to participate in STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) through play, exploration and creativity.

The charity has quarterly Board Meetings in Central London or via conference call.

Skills sought:

  • STEM professionals
  • Finance (particularly someone interested in taking on the role of Treasurer)
  • Fundraising
