Mark your calendars and make plans now to join us for the 64th National Conference on Science Education in the heart of Music City! NSTA is returning to Nashville in 2016, yet this time at the brand new, state-of-the-art Music City Center. We will be joined by thousands of energized attendees from all over the country, all of whom can't wait to meet you. Our conference attendees are spending lots of time on the exhibit hall floor talking to people like you to find out what’s hot in science education today. Last year, over 50% of our attendees spent an average of three or more hours of their conference experience on the exhibit floor.
We project …
Over 10,000 science teachers and administrators attending both from the US and abroad
2,500+ academic sessions and presentations
More than 400 commercial workshops
Over 400 exhibiting organizations
The NSTA Exhibit Hall is a must-see! NSTA brings you the leading science education companies and organizations to showcase products, services, curricula, and much more. You'll discover something new and exciting in the world of science teaching.
NSTA attendees consistently rate the Exhibit Hall as one of their favorite aspects of the conference. Specifically, they enjoy the opportunity to see, experience, and learn about the latest products, services, and programs available while also meeting the people responsible for delivering the tools they use in the classroom. Any company or organization involved with K-16 science education will find a receptive and eager audience.
Face-to-face interaction is important to science educators.
4 conferences (3 area and 1 national) and ongoing special events (STEM Forum & Expo) to maximize your exposure to science educators in the U.S., Canada, and internationally.
Exhibitor Workshops - your opportunity to shine in front of attendees off the exhibit hall floor. Showcase products, services and your company - make your company a classroom name.
Sponsorships - maximize your brand at the conference. Put your company in front of attendees by sponsoring a featured speaker, bags, name badges, or share your own idea. We are flexible and willing work with you.
