Covid-19 Webinar Series

Welcome to the ASE's special coronavirus resources portal - a collection of resources and links designed to assist our members, the science education community at large and the general public over the coming weeks and months. We see this as a living, growing resource, so do please return and share with your friends and colleagues...

As a professional community dedicated to supporting excellence in science teaching and learning, we are determined to do whatever we can to support people over the coming weeks and months. On this page, you will find both a collection of materials created specifically by us that we hope may be of assistance during the current health crisis and a directory of links (with both Primary and 11-19 versions) to assets and resources created by others that we feel support our goal of promoting excellence in science education. The resources in both of these directories are being reviewed by the educators in our Primary and 11-19 committees on an ongoing basis.
