Aims
Supporting the teaching of Earth sciences at all levels
Our Aim  
The aim of the Earth Science Teachers’ Association (ESTA) is to advance education by encouraging and supporting the teaching of Earth sciences at all levels, whether as a single subject such as Geology, or as part of Science or Geography or other courses. The Association has been helping teachers at all levels for more than 50 years and continues to develop in response to emerging educational challenges. What can ESTA offer you?  •Our magazine, Teaching Earth Sciences, is published twice a year. It contains articles on classroom, laboratory and field teaching, news and resources, curriculum updates, book and website reviews and more. •Our newsletter, ESTA News, is published twice a year.  It contains details about new geology field guides and books, dates of geological events, courses, lectures, field excursions, conferences, new website links and links to items of recent Earth science news. •An Annual Course and Conference that is held over a long weekend (Friday -Sunday) in September. It offers a range of in-service training, academic updating, ideas for teaching and fieldwork, plus exhibits of resources. Conferences are held at venues across the country, with recent conferences at the Plymouth, Cardiff and St Andrews Universities. •Resources specific to Primary teachers, covering the Earth science elements of the National Curriculum, and exploring links with other subjects. Resources include the Primary Level Pack: Working with Soils. •Resources specific to Secondary, Further and Higher Education teachers, including FIELDWORK SKILLS, STEGO and GEOTREX (web based resources for the teaching and learning of geology at GCSE and A level).  Other resources include ESTA’s Virtual Earth Science Experiments and Earth Science Experiments (a collection of over 90 experiments designed for use by 'A' level and undergraduate students). •Initiatives such as the Joint Earth Science Education Initiative (JESEI): a project instigated by ESTA to provide Secondary teachers with flexible in-service training and activities to ‘bring Earth science to life’. •Real value-for-money ESTA teaching materials, including rock and fossil practical kits and the Primary Level Packs such as Working with Soils. •Engagement with examination boards and educational organisations, allowing you to keep abreast of curriculum development, syllabuses and assessment methods. •A network of fellow members and a dedicated website to support your Earth science teaching. On a broader scale, ESTA supports Earth science education in the wider community, typically through partnerships. Here you can download a leaflet illustrating the things ESTA can offer you
