What NSTA Conferences Have to Offer

conference session

NSTA conferences are jam-packed with innovative presentations and hands-on workshops as well as special invited speakers, educational field trips, short courses, NSTA Symposia (which provide online follow-up after the conference online), and exciting social events. The Exhibition of Science Education Materials is the largest exhibition of its kind and is an invaluable source of curriculum and other products.

As an important addition to the national conference agenda, NSTA presents Professional Development Institutes—focused, content-based, partnered programs that explore key topics in significant depth. These daylong programs offer participants a unique learning opportunity that includes a personalized pathway through the full conference agenda. NSTA national conferences may also feature one-day topical research dissemination conferences on focused topics. In plenary sessions and multiple small-group workshops, speakers present findings from their NSF-funded research. Details on these special conference events will be provided as programs are confirmed.
