Overview

We invite you to join us for the NSTA Denver Area Conference! The importance of science education is even more vital now with the release of the Next Generation Science Standards. The theme for this conference—Science Runs Through It—emphasizes how everything is science, is related to science, or incorporates science. The Denver Conference Committee has engineered a wide variety of professional learning opportunities and experiences for a diverse audience of elementary through post-secondary educators, coordinators, and administrators. From field trips, short courses, and workshops to general and specific presentations, you are sure to find just what you need to enhance your own learning as well as your students’ learning. In addition, the networking opportunities will be boundless and will complement your current PLC. Just as Science Runs Through It, you will find friendships and mentorships running throughout this conference and your future.

The conference is organized around three strands: PreK–8 Science: A Playground for Literacy and Mathematics; Engineering the Engineering: Connecting the Why to the How; and Exploring STEM: Inside and Out. These strands offer content sessions developed for all levels and include a featured presentation by a leading researcher. Our program also includes an extra featured presentation by Scott Sampson from the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and an outstanding keynote speaker, Geoffrey Ling, recently retired from the U.S. Army and an authority on Traumatic Brain Injury. His work has been featured twice on 60 Minutes.

The love of learning and the thrill of showcasing science has guided us in planning this premier event for you!
