Registration: Limited to 50 Participants
Cost: $30.00 (Includes a one-year membership to MDSTA)To make science education in the United States internationally competitive, multiple states collaborated to create Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) to provide benchmarks to elevate, enhance and enrich STEM education across all grades and disciplines. MDSTA is developing a series of
workshops to offer various NGSS strands for elementary, middle, and high school educators.
The first workshop for Middle School teachers will focus on Weather and Climate. We’ll be featuring an exciting speaker and expert climatologist Dr. Jeffrey Andresen, who will be providing you with current information on weather and climate and how it directly affects Michigan and the Great Lakes region. You will be participating in two breakout sessions, with a culminating closeout session. No matter your level of teaching, these workshops will add to your teaching repertoire.
STEM Impact: Women Untold
MDSTA co-hosted a workshop with the STEM Center at Lawrence Technological University in August, 2019. The topic was "STEM Impact - Women Untold." View the resources from the workshop on our EVENTS page.
Do you have a teaching resource that you would like to share with the MDSTA community? If so, MDSTA is providing a new website for members who want to share their teaching resources. Check out the latest addition at our MEMBER SHARED RESOURCES page.
From the MDSTA Board of Directors and the Fall Conference Organizing Committee
Due to a number of factors, including declining conference attendance in recent years plus the need to find a new venue, the DACTM and MDSTA Boards have each decided to cancel this year's conference.
We want you, our recent presenters and members, to be among the first to know. Both Boards have plans for smaller scale science and math events soon.
