 How to involve more schools, more quickly – from later Waves

Press Release, DCSF, 23rd June 2008:
Fast Track – 8 LAs – rebuild / refurbish:
       5 schools most in need of investment

BSF – “is not just a building programme. (It) .. Aims to create
learning environments which inspire all young people …;
provide teachers with 21st Century work places…; provide
access to facilities … by all members of the local

BSF Chief Executive, Tim Byles:
“BSF allows us to banish thoughts of schools from the past.
Good science and good science teaching is based on
rigorous principles of observation and experiment. Science
educators, having considered what they want to be
happening in school science laboratories in the future,
are best placed to work with design teams to ensure that
teaching and learning spaces serve these requirements.
Not only that, they should ensure that the physical and virtual
learning environment is designed to maximise flexibility for
future development.”
