The University of East Anglia will help Norfolk and Suffolk school children learn about cutting edge research thanks to a new multi million pound funding deal. It is one of 12 universities to benefit from a share of Research Councils UK funding.

The three-year project will see the UEA working with City of Norwich School as a lead partner, along with Wymondham High School, Attleborough High School, Archbishop Sancroft High School in Harleston, Thetford Academy and the Norwich School.

Suffolk schools involved include the Kesgrave and Farlingaye Teaching Alliance.

The aim is to motivate young people from a diversity of backgrounds to be excited about cutting edge research and raise their aspirations for further study and future lives.
