Taking part: ESSENTIAL INFORMATION
OPTION 1: SCHOOLS APPLYING FOR A PLACE AT THE CENTRAL EVENT at the Etihad Campus, Manchester
If you are in Greater Manchester primary schools you are eligble to apply for one or two stands at the event. Schools wishing to apply for a space at the Etihad Campus must complete the GSS Application Form as fully as possible, and submit it, together with the Etihad Risk Assessment by 5pm on Wednesday 31 May 2017.
Schools can bring up to eight children per stand. There must be at least two teachers for each school group attending. There is a choice of two types of stand/space - a 'table-top' or 'grassed area'. Both spaces will have a display board.
Applications will be reviewed and a response given to all applicants no later than Thursday 8 June 2017. We recommend you apply sooner rather than later. We can assist you in completing the application form if necessary.
The following questions should be considered before submiting the application:
- Will the proposed science share inspire, enthuse and engage other learners?
- Has the application form been fully completed with as much detail as possible?
- Has the risk assessment been completed and submitted alongside the application form?
- Is your school signed up to the Great Science Share (visit www.greatscienceshare.org)
- Are you doing anything else in school that day that will complement the Etihad event?
More information about the Etihad Campus event and completing the application can be found here: Etihad Campus Event - General Information

OPTION 2: SCHOOLS REGISTERING A GREAT SCIENCE SHARE AT THEIR SCHOOL OR WORKPLACE
Register your school/education events or activities taking place this summer as part of the Great Science School's Share. The main share day is Wednesday 5 July 2017, but if you are involved in science activities around that time we are keen to include your event too.
You can promote and share your events using #GSShare17.
If you have any questions about the application process, please email email@example.com.
OPTION 3: Do both of the above! We strongly encourage schools to be involved in both the GSS Ethad event and also to host something at their school for a wider audience.
