This resource lists materials for a variety of science activities in the classroom, identifies some sources of equipment and consumables, and gives some approximate prices as at the date of the most recent update of this resource, (which is given on the homepage ).

Teachers with responsibility for science can use these lists to help make decisions about buying science materials.
