About the site
We hope that you enjoy visiting Sciencepages.co.uk. We always welcome feedback from visitors about the site; if you have any comments (e.g. suggested improvements) then please contact us.
Here are the awards that this site has currently received.
Sciencepages.co.uk began life as the online home of the Science Department at Nether Stowe School in Lichfield, Staffordshire. Over the course of two years, a variety of resources were added to the site to support Science students at the school.
In April 2004, I moved to a position at Wolverhampton City Learning Centre. The site was relaunched in January 2005, and now accepts revision materials and student work from science teachers and students across the UK.
Unless otherwise credited, materials on the site were created by me during my time at Nether Stowe. Once other schools have contributed materials, the names of the schools and staff will be listed here and on the pages they have contributed.
Images on the site come from a variety of sources. The banner images and the front-page (microscope) image are used under license from istockphoto.com. Cartoons were kindly drawn by Mrs. S. Stepek, Nether Stowe School, Lichfield. Other images may come from websites. If you have any objection to the use of these images for educational purposes, please contact us.
Quizzes on the site use PHP and an SQL database. The PHP script for the quizzes was created in-house.
Crosswords were created by Crossword Compiler, and are used under license.
To the best of our knowledge, all revision notes on the site are original. If you have reason to believe that sciencepages.co.uk has infringed copyright in any way, please contact us with details, and we will remove the offending item(s) immediately.
