LASAR (Learning about Science and Religion) is a project in collaboration with the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion (based at St. Edmund’s College, Cambridge).  
We are engaged in a research project to discover secondary school pupils' ideas about science and religion. We also offer a website with articles and videos for pupils and teachers at Faradayschools.com
This site contains information about the project including research findings.
