About Lightyear: Science education is vital for all children. Science complements children’s natural curiosity, teaches them about the world around them and develops key skills such as problem solving and perseverance. It also creates the scientists of tomorrow to advance development and solve problems.
Our flagship project is SENSORY SCIENCE: an immersive, sensory experience breaking down the barriers to science participation for children with physical and/or learning disabilities:
Tier I A fun exploration to help children learn life-skills (such as choice making or coping with unexpected outcomes) through workshops led by a scientist and drama professional
Tier II Breaking down the barriers to science as a career for all (as well as disabled children, we also work with those from lower socioeconomic groups or children facing other life challenges)
The opportunity: We are recruiting for several new Trustees. Knowledge or experience of finance, science and in particular disability is desirable but all applications are welcome.
Commitment: The Board meets 4 times a year via phone conference or meetings in Central London.
