Have you seen the new New Zealand Science Teacher website that has recently gone online. This site has been created by NZASE (New Zealand Association of Science Educators) and provides a veritable feast of information on everything you wanted to know about science and science education.

The website is updated weekly with the latest news, opinion, videos, and articles relevant to science education in New Zealand. Although you need to be an NZASE member to view some content there is still a lot to inspire any teacher. Have a browse and let us know what you think.

Do you have any other favourite science websites that you use in your classroom? It would be fantastic if you could share these here.

    Thanks Catriona and Jennie for sharing these great websites.

    At the moment people may be interested in the GNS Science learning centre if they are looking at earthquakes. This site has fantastic videos, unit plans, photos, links and information on all things geological.

    There is also a hot topics section currently investigating the Cook Strait earthquakes sequence - remember knowledge and understanding can empower us even when it comes to the unpredictable nature of earthquakes.

    Kia ora koutou, if you're looking for a website to help students write scientific reports try CAST Science Writer.

    This website provides a free tool that supports students in writing science or lab reports by guiding them through the process of drafting, revising and editing under appropriate sub-headings. It supports a variety of learning styles and abilities by offering sentence starters, text to speech and animated helpers.
