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 40 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. 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 Southampton, Leicester and Durham Universities. Resources specific to Primary teachers, covering the Earth science elements of the National Curriculum, and exploring links with other subjects. These include bi-annual issues of Teaching Primary Earth Science and teaching packs featuring soils and rocks. Resources specific to Secondary, Further and Higher Education teachers, including GEOTREX (web based resources for the teaching and learning of geology at GCSE and A level) and Earth Science Experiments (a CD collection of over 90 experiments designed for use by 'A' level and undergraduate students). Initiatives such as the Earth Science Education Unit (ESEU) and the Joint Earth Science Education Initiative (JESEI). These have been 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, wall maps and the Primary Level Packs: Working with Rocks and 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 ESTA Leaflet
