Stem cell toolkit gets a facelift

Our toolkit of downloadable stem cell resources and activities has been growing so fast it's getting hard to keep up with all the new additions. We launched with just five tools, but that number has since grown to 13 tools for teaching and talking about stem cells, in the classroom, science centre, open day, festival and other educational settings. 

We've had great feedback from teachers and others from around Europe:

“[The] toolkit web page ... is very easy to use. Everything appeals to me: not only the “surface”, icons and links, but also the contents are very useful and interesting.” Teacher, Italy


How do you teach stem cells?

On Monday 4 June from 8-9pm (UK time) we're hosting an #asechat on how to teach stem cells, on Twitter. It's a topic we've thought a lot about, as we've developed, tested and refined a whole suite of tools and resources to support anyone interested in teaching stem cells. We're really looking forward to the discussion!

What is #asechat?

#asechat is a weekly online science education discussion group organized by the Association for Science Education. The discussion is conducted via Twitter. #asechat takes place on Monday evenings from 8.00-9.00pm (UK time). Everyone is welcome.
