There is no charge to use the Science Engagement survey. At NZCER we are interested in the sorts of science related learning experiences happening in our primary and early secondary schools. While your school's data will always remain absolutely confidential to your school, over time we will be collecting aggregated data from all schools to obtain a clearer picture of what's happening and where the gaps are - a national profile. This information will be used to benefit science education in New Zealand. As there is something in it for us we are offering the survey free, for now.
