Science Resources for Schools

in collaboration with Scottish Schools Education Research Centre (SSERC)

Edina is proud to support those schools in Scotland who are participating in SSERC's Primary Cluster Programme (PCP). In addition, we are pleased to support up to 100 further schools participating in the Primary Science Teaching Trust Sustain and Extend Programme (PSTT SEP) with easy-to-access £350 grants.

The aim of the grant is to provide hands-on science equipment to help facilitate practical approaches to the learning and teaching of science that supports the Curriculum of Excellence. We will fund a wide range of indoor and outdoor science equipment.


(Please note that we will not approve grants to pay for equipment intended for adult use, or expensive individual electronic devices such as laptops or iPads).

All we ask in return is that, once you have received and had a chance to use the equipment, you submit a short report to let us know the impact that the grant had on your school.
