Te Rōpū Whakaako Koiora o Aotearoa
Biology Educators of Aotearoa New Zealand (BEANZ) is an incorporated society whose purpose is to support and promote Biology education throughout New Zealand.
Our focus is on building pedagogy and content knowledge of members through the provision of regular newsletters, regional workshops, resources, website, and scholarships for members to attend relevant conferences, specific projects such as provision of support materials, and the biennial conference, BioLive.
BEANZ also produces and publishes NCEA level 3 practice examination papers each year as well as other materials to support teachers in assessment practices.
WE’VE MADE CHANGES TO OUR MEMBERSHIP STRUCTURE
- BEANZ is no longer a standing committee of the New Zealand Association of Science Educators (NZASE)
- BEANZ Membership now costs $150 per school* but INCLUDES our L3 Biology exams
- Members who held a subscription with NZASE will be given a 1 year membership free-of-charge
