The lack of quality science resources in school limits the type of science lessons we can deliver
The lack of quality science resources in school affects the number of science lessons we can deliver

The opportunities and experiences we currently offer for science visits/science visitors are limited
Our current science resources do not enthuse and encourage our pupils to have an interest in science

* 8. Edina Science Grant Marketing & LA Feedback
Edina likes to create an information bank of ideas to publicise its grant scheme to schools and help them decide how to use their grants effectively. Edina would also like to share some anonymised feedback with local authorities on their respective areas after year three to allow them to reflect on the schemes that have come to an end. 

Please let us know if we can use the information from this survey anonymously on our website (www.edinatrust.org.uk), Twitter (@EdinaTrust),and/or in our newsletters, and if we can share with local authorities.

Edina has permission to:

Photographs are particularly welcomed (with, or without, supporting information or material generated during the project). If you have any lessons plans or pictures that you are happy to share, please send them to: reporting@edinatrust.org.uk

If you send any pictures and/or materials to the Trust, please clearly indicate if we can use them on our website, Twitter, and/or in our newsletters. (Where permission is expressly given photographs will be used for no more than six years, after which time they will be deleted).

Thank you for your time.
