Science with Technology

The Science with Technology project was a joint initiative of the Association for Science Education (ASE) and the Design and Technology Association (DATA). It was set up to develop curriculum links between science and technology for students aged 14-19 years. The project provided resource materials for students and support for teachers of both science and technology. The materials were intended to be used with courses leading to GCSE, vocational qualifications and A/AS level qualifications. The resources were developed in collaboration with experts from a range of major industrial companies.
