Scienceray Barker, director at Besa, says:"Interestingly, the number of students who chose to study science rose this year; something which many would argue can be attributed to the 'Brian Cox effect'. Although there are questions surrounding what the new curriculum will look like, there is no doubt that science will become an increasingly core subject. If schools are going to meet requirements for the English Baccalaureate then science will become mandatory, especially if Britain wants to compete as a nation with places like China and India. At BETT, teachers interested in how technology is enhancing the teaching of science can find dedicated seminars and workshops, as well as science-specific products from exhibitors like Encyclopaedia Britannica and the National STEM Centre."

We promote excellence in science teaching and learning, and offer unique benefits for our members. The ASE's national committees play a pro-active role in science education policy, discussing the new National Curriculum with the DfE and informing headteachers of the value of laboratory technicians and the importance of science in primary schools.Experienced science teachers (primary as well as secondary) can apply to the ASE for Chartered Science Teacher status, CSciTeach, a nationally recognised chartered status for the science teaching profession. We also offer special support to trainee science teachers and NQTs. Publications and resources are also available from the ASE on all aspects of science for schools, including a newly revised Heads of Science handbook and the authoritative guides - 'ASE Guide to Primary Science Education' and 'ASE Guide to Secondary Science Education'. Our website www.schoolscience.co.uk gets over 4 million page views each year and is a must for educators and learners alike as it is packed with free to access science resources, giveaways, competitions and much more. Look out for the new schoolscience website - with a new look and new features - it truly is the site where nothing stands still!#ASEChat has been described as the virtual staffroom for science teachers. The Twitter based weekly online science education discussion group takes place on Monday evenings at 8.00pm.
