Science ASSIST is a national online advisory service for school science educators and technicians. It is freely available to all Australian schools and provides:

  • expert, up-to-date information on high-quality teaching and learning resources;
  • support for teachers in the implementation of the Australian Curriculum: Science;
  • consistent and authoritative advice on all aspects of school laboratory safety, management and design;
  • support for school laboratory technicians and teachers in the delivery of stimulating and practical science activities; and
  • an extensive range of educationally sound and safety-compliant practical activities for a hands-on, inquiry-based study of science in school science laboratories and classrooms.

The Australian Science Teachers Association (ASTA), in consultation with Science Education Technicians Australia (SETA), manages Science ASSIST. Please visit their respective websites for their policies on matters concerning pedagogy and safety.

Science ASSIST was funded by the Federal Department of Education between 2013 and 2018 and is currently sponsored by CSIRO Education and Outreach.

Science ASSIST has an e-newsletter, which comes out at least twice a year. To sign up for the e-newsletter visit the following web page: https://asta.edu.au/programs/assist
