Lightyear Foundation is a science charity that exists to make science education as accessible as possible for children in the UK, so that all children have the opportunity to explore, get excited by, and gain a deeper understanding of science. We are on a mission to ensure that science is a part of every child’s life, regardless of ability or social background.

We focus our efforts on disabled children. We believe it is vital to break down the barriers to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) for those with SEN (Special Educational Needs). Our agship programme is Sensory Science; an immersive and creative experience that uses entertaining science experiments to inspire disabled children to learn science while providing practical knowledge to improve their lives. We also showcase Sensory Science to champion those with SEN being able to access STEM education and careers.

We believe everybody should have the opportunity to unlock their potential, solve problems and engage with science.

Lightyear Foundation is fully not-for-profit and we rely on sponsors and donations to make our projects happen.

As an organisation that is just starting out we welcome whatever contribution you can make, from £5 to £500 your support is greatly valued.
