ASTARIX - discussion forum for Australian Science Educators

Got some news to share? Or some views about Science Education in Australia that you want to get off your chest?

ASTARIX 2.0 is a discussion forum on the ASTA Online Professional Learning Portal. It is a place for teachers to share ideas, resources and comments about Science Education, with a particular focus on Australia. Users may also use the forum to share appropriate and relevant Positions Vacant and appeals for academic assistance.

ASTA staff and office holders use ASTARIX as a way of spreading the news about ASTA activities, so it is a good way to keep up with what's happening in your national association as well.
