Science ASSIST is a new and innovative national online advisory service for school science educators and technicians. It is freely available to ALL Australian schools from ALL education jurisdictions and sectors in EVERY state and territory. Science ASSIST is managed by the Australian Science Teachers Association (ASTA) in consultation with Science Education Technicians Australia (SETA). It is funded by the Department of Education.
Science ASSIST provides:
- expert, up-to-date information on high-quality teaching and learning resources;
- support for teachers in the implementation of the Australian Curriculum: Science;
- consistent and authoritative advice on all aspects of school laboratory safety, management and design;
- support for school laboratory technicians and teachers in the delivery of stimulating and practical science activities.
Advice is provided by an expert national advisory team with extensive collective experience across all areas of science. An extensive range of educationally sound and safety-compliant practical activities for a hands-on, inquiry based study of science in school science laboratories and classrooms is available on the site.
The ASSIST website will be officially launched at Parliament House, Canberra on 12 November 2014.
