Goodbye....for now

The Science ASSIST project has now formally finished and we are no longer able to answer any questions posted to the Science ASSIST website. We continue to seek additional funding to commence a Phase 2 of Science ASSIST and we will let you know if, and when, we are successful.

The good news is that the Science ASSIST website will continue to operate and you will still have free access to all the resources created over the life of the project. In addition, the Science ASSIST Facebook page will continue to be updated with posts about all the fabulous science resources available on the website. Follow the page if you don't already.
