1851 Trust is a specialist education charity set up in 2014 by Sir Ben Ainslie, alongside his British America’s Cup sailing team, and supported by Royal Patron HRH The Duchess of Cambridge.

The Trust harnesses the power of cutting-edge science and technology in maritime, sports and sustainability contexts to inspire young people to pursue science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

We create unique learning experiences for young people delivered with a network of partners, schools and parents across the UK and internationally. It’s our ambition to give young people everywhere access to free, world class STEM inspiration online or in person.
