Sustainable Scrap Science
A booklet with a set of activities for delivering science in schools where resources are limited. This project was initiated in 2004 when we began working with local primary schools. Initially the project developed a resource bank of activities which could enable activity based science learning to take place in a school situation where resources are limited. The project then developed with the encouragement of visiting teachers to Sangam, and the project was funded through DIFID to develop into a schools linking project, and schools in the UK joined the project. A weblog was formed for sharing ideas and activities with linked schools from other parts of the world. There are currently 24 schools assigned to the project. Sangam continues to co-ordinates the Indian end of the project. : http://www.sustainablescrapscience.net/
