Earth and Space Science Educators of New Zealand (ESSENZ) is the national subject association supporting and promoting Earth and Space Science (ESS) education, both the full ESS courses and Science courses that contain ESS standards (SciESS - our abbreviation).

Our aim is to make sure that ESS is well resourced and that PLD workshops are run and 1on1 help is available throughout New Zealand. The range of help that ESSE provides can be found here. The contact details for the ESSE office holders plus the regional representatives can be found here.

This website provides links to resources, notifications about PLD workshops, regional meetings and webinars, notices of conferences and other events such as field trips and information on how we are using our Network of Expertise funding.
