The role of ESWA is to support the teaching of earth science in schools by developing teaching and learning resources, providing professional development for teachers, presenting at schools and assisting with field experiences for students.
Teachers of Earth and Environmental Science also have free access to field trip support (including funding) and the Geoscientists in Schools program (linking guest presenters to schools). Jo Watkins also enables email networking to share activities and ideas and continuous collegiate support (see Contacts).
Teachers of both primary and secondary Earth and Space Science are able to access Julia Ferguson for classroom modelling of hands-on, engaging experiences. Loan kits and further resources may also be accessed by contacting Julia Ferguson (see Contacts).
Over the course of this year this website will be continuously updated with new and improved resources: so don’t forget to check in regularly!
