Becta resources


The Association for Science Education (ASE) is now hosting a selection of science education resources from the Becta website, which closed on 31 January 2011 after its government funding was withdrawn.

Material available on the ASE site includes Hard to Teach (case studies and ideas for teaching difficult science topics using ICT), ICT in Secondary Science (a range of different uses of ICT mapped against different aspects of How Science Works), and a variety of science symbols in different languages. 

The resources are available to download for free from the website.
