Science ASSIST is an 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). In 2019, Science ASSIST is sponsored by CSIRO Education.

In 2014, ASTA developed an innovative, national advisory service called Science ASSIST. Science ASSIST was established to address a critical need—teachers of science and school laboratory technicians require good quality technical support to enable them to deliver opportunities for meaningful, practical activities for their students. The aim of the service is to improve the safety in the delivery of practical work conducted in school science lessons and to improve the general safety of school science laboratories.

Science ASSIST is the only service of its kind in Australia. It is a dynamic portal that provides school science educators with information, resources and consistent, well-researched, authoritative technical advice on school science laboratory safety and procedures in line with relevant state and territory requirements
