Two ideas to start with: Firstly, I'm not sure of the age range of your school, or how old you are, but might it be possible to start up a lunchtime 'science club' for younger pupils? Probably the teachers wouldn't be so happy if you started to use the labs to do experiments, but with a few laptops you could do a lot - discussion, research etc, making a simple circuit, etc etc. Secondly, I'd say it would be really useful to read outside your syllabus, and I'd recommend New Scientist and Focus magazines. If you don't want to buy these yourself, they might have them in your school library, or the public library, or you could look on their websites. I feel this reading would be a real help, as you'd get a broader view and if you had an interview for this scholarship then you could talk impressively about a range of scientific topics! Let me know if you'd like any further help/advice.

Keep an eye out for science prizes run by companies and colleges. Here is an example:

There are two benefits: your school gets recognition (which makes them happy with you) and you get some great experience. I think Rolls Royce run a prize as well
