You may have had no Earth science teaching in your own background, so how can you be expected to teach it well and with enthusiasm?

Realising this, the Joint Earth Science Education Initiative (JESEI) was instigated with you in mind. By collaboration between the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), the Institute of Biology (IoB), the Institute of Physics and the Earth Science Teachers’ Association (ESTA), we have prepared materials to help you chemistry, biology and physics specialists with their teaching of Earth science.

JESEI is supported by the Royal Society, the Association for Science Education (ASE), the Geological Society and the UK Offshore Operators Association (UKOOA) – to whom we are most grateful.

We hope that these new approaches will revitalise your Earth science teaching and give new dimensions to your own teaching of science.
