Distance Learning and Teaching Materials

1. ETSI Teaching Resource

This link connects you to a beta version of a new ETSI teaching resource website for those wishing to learn and teach science. The following materials are currently available for the Biology curriculum:
  • Syllabus
  • Year 1-4 Primers
  • Foldscope instructions
  • Year 1-5 PowerPoint slides, activities, exams, and videos
  • Biology Discussion Board

We are in the process of adding the materials described above for the Neuroscience, Philosophy of Science, and Physics curricula.

Tibetan-English scientific terms are also available. Additionally, a Tibetan-English scientific term glossary will soon be available. Please share any comments, questions, suggestions related to the resource website to Kelsey Gray at
