The NZAPSE is a branch of the New Zealand Association of Science Educators (NZASE). Our role is to celebrate science in Primary Schools and to enhance the teaching and learning of science at primary level. The NZAPSE runs an annual Primary Science Week in Term 2 proving an opportunity for all New Zealand schools to engage in science learning.
