All 2018 Books 1.jpg

Here we have gathered a selection of science books that are recommended for primary level.

The Edina Trust science grants are intended for the purchase of hands-on equipment and experiences. While we don't encourage schools to use their grant to purchase books, we recognise how valuable they are for inspiring the next generation of scientists! We will allow up to £200 to be spent on science books for the children through our Science Grant Scheme.

Please get in touch if you have any thoughts or recommendations for this list. You can contact us through our contact form or on Twitter.

The ASE Book Award Shortlist

The ASE Book Award seeks to find a book that goes that ‘extra mile’ and supports its vision of ‘science for all’, a book that could supplement a teacher’s understanding, that innovative hook, or something that goes beyond the traditional science curriculum.
