Welcome to Science into Schools

Wastebuster are proud to be working with the Pod, EDF Energy and the British Science Association to  inspire young people’s interest in science and engineering and increase access to science resources through positive environmental action -  helping people find positive ways to deal with the things they no longer need.

Science into Schools provides schools with access to a wide range of free resources and the ability to get new science equipment from textile collections.

A recent report by the Welcome Trust revealed that pupils enjoy science more and see its relevance when there are clear links between the subject and real world examples and they can take part in practical, ‘hands-on’ activities. 


Recycle textiles to get Science equipment

Working with the British Science Association

The British Science Association is proud to be working with the Pod and Wastebuster on the fantastic Science into Schools campaign.

We are a registered charity that exists to advance the public understanding and accessibility of science and engineering in the UK - so we love that more schools will be getting hands-on resources and kit as a reward for recycling.
