Come explore the Next Generation Science Standards and learn how science links with the Common Core State Standards in ELA and Mathematics. You can also discover how to connect Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics to benefit all our students and everybody's future. We've planned an engaging conference filled with hands-on workshops, presentations, and field trips that will provide you with the tools to build your bridge to the future.
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.
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.
