In addition to the costs that each team will incur in purchasing materials and ingredients there are a number of other costs that they might incur and below is a table of some of these possible costs.

It is not a comprehensive list and during the course of the project more things can be added and if participating schools get requests for something that is not on the list then they will need to contact the project co-ordinator to get them added.
