As a teacher trainer, the ASE is THE way to keep on top of all that is new and exciting in science education and membership is an essential prerequisite of being fit for the initial teacher education role; you even get to know about issues before they become current in schools. Publications like STE, EiS and SSR are important channels of information, ideas and initiatives critical to the role that I fill.
- Roger Lock

ASE journals are a free benefit of membership and are written by some of the most exciting and experienced science educators in the UK and beyond. They also represent a forum through which members who are not necessarily experienced writers can air their views and share their ideas.  ASE journals are designed to keep you up-to-date with what’s happening in science teaching, from new developments in classroom practice to how you can explore ‘hot topics’ with your students.

EiS Xtra

Can't get enough of EiS? Readers of the ASE's in-house magazine can access additional material in between issues with the online-only EiSXtra.
