In January 2016 the Association for Science Education (ASE) ran a four day conference in Birmingham for science teachers and educators in the United Kingdom. Whether you teach primary or secondary, lead a department or are just starting on your training, the ASE Annual Conference is an invaluable opportunity to discover resources, enhance your subject knowledge and share teaching approaches.
The Association for Science Education is the largest subject association in the UK. It is the professional body for all those involved in science education from pre-school to higher education.

ASE Members include teachers, technicians and advisers. The Association plays a significant role in promoting excellence in teaching and learning of science in schools and colleges. The ASE is an independent and open forum for debating science education, with unique benefits for members. It provides a unique range of services to promote high quality science education by developing resources and fostering high quality Continuing Professional Development.
One session on ‘A culturally inclusive curriculum’ was led by Marianne Cutler (ASE), Ayshah Ismael (Curriculum Enrichment 4 The Future CE4TF) and Rukhsana Yaqoob (Muslim teachers’’ Association)
Information was shared and issues explored about how to make our present science curriculum a more culturally inclusive one and how this helps to effectively engage pupils. The PowerPoint Presentation that accompanied the session is shared below.
