Welcome to the NZASE!

Nau mai, welcome to the National Association of Science Educators, the national body representing teachers of science at all levels.

We provide professional development, support and resources for teachers of science around the country. We organise a national conference for teachers of science and regularly update our calendar of events relevant to science teaching. We also co-ordinate ethics approval for the use of animals in science in schools.

Keeping safe in school labs during COVID-19

NZASE have put together these guidelines for use with your school’s policies and procedures, to help limit exposure to COVID-19 and reduce the probability of its transmission amongst students, teachers, technicians, cleaners, and other staff using school laboratories. You can also use this  flow chart to help make decisions about  practical activities during COVID-19. Please don’t hesitate to contact us at NZASE if we can help you in any way during these changing times.
