This November edition of EiS includes updates on various ASE activities, including the recent UK successes at the Science on Stage Festival in Portugal, information about the Science Teacher SOS project and the 2020 Bangkok ASE Conference, plus The Prep Room, a write-up on the successful 2019 ASE Northern Ireland Conference and a new venture, the EiS Interview, this time with explorer and author of 'Polo the Bear', Alan Hesse.  The feature for this issue is 'the curriculum', and there is another useful practical pullout about practical science in primary settings.
