This spring, the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) will feature a special strand “2017: A STEM Odyssey” at our 2017 National Conference on Science Education, in Los Angeles: March 30–April 2. Students’ science learning has changed dramatically from learning in the past. In a STEM environment, students’ understanding of the world around them is facilitated through the intentional connections between the four disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. STEM curriculum provides research-based instructional strategies that engage diverse learners and highlights career pathways in STEM-related fields. More importantly, STEM provides opportunities for all students to place themselves in a 21st-century world. Participants will connect and collaborate to increase their understanding and ability to teach STEM-based lessons and instructional sequences.

The featured presentation for this strand will be announced soon!

Below is a small sampling of other sessions on this topic:

  • Host a Rockstar Family STEM Event
  • Incorporating Global STEM Collaboration into Your Classroom!
  • Interactive Science Notebooks: Low-Tech Creations for Higher Level Thinking
  • Bilingual Engineering Adventures for the Whole Family
