Europe's largest science education conference is back

#ASEConf2022, kindly sponsored by AQA, will kick off in the afternoon on Wednesday 5th January with a programme designed specifically for early career teachers including trainees, NQTs and RQTs, followed by a drinks and nibbles networking opportunity in the evening. This programme, generously sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry, is available exclusively to early career teachers. Not a member yet? Join now to enjoy this programme, along with a free Annual Conference Day Pass and many other CPD opportunities for as little as £24 for your first year.

Thursday 6th through Saturday 8th January will be filled to the brim with sessions for primary and 11-19 educators, dedicated Post-16 and Technicians programmes, afternoon sessions for those involved in teachers’ professional learning, as well as our ever-popular series of Frontier Science lectures, providing opportunities to update your knowledge on cutting-edge science.

Our Technicians Day on Thursday 6th January includes a Breakfast TechMeet kindly sponsored by the local Sheffield Tescos with teas/coffees and Danish pastries exclusive for all registered Tech delegates starting at 08:30 so if you are a Science Tech attending the day, ensure you arrive hungry!

As always, there will be networking opportunities on each day, including our Members Reception and Street Food and Music social on the Thursday evening, and Conference Dinner on the Friday with special-guest speaker Meteorologist Laura Tobin. We are also delighted to be hosting Friday's Party in the Atrium with a PAYG bar. And there will be a fantastic exhibition running throughout the conference, packed with resources, ideas, equipment and giveaways from key partners.

The exhibition is free to attend but please register your interest on Eventbrite.
