Georgia Science...Engage!

Register for GSTA's 2017 Annual Conference

With the theme, Georgia Science... Engage!, this year's conference will help teachers engage their students in 3D science learning with the new Georgia Standards of Excellence, in STEM learning that is grounded in the science classroom, and in literacy that supports effective science reasoning.
  • Strand 1: Engaging in the Science Georgia Standards of Excellence (Co-sponsored by GaDOE)
  • Strand 2: Engaging in STEM to Provide Context for Science
  • Strand 3: Engaging in Literacy to Advance Science Instruction
Visit our conference page for details. 

Who Are We?

As an organization we are committed to support excellent science teaching for the students of the state of Georgia. A major function of the organization is to host an annual conference each February, offered to all people involved with science education in the state.

We also support science education professionals through our eObservations newsletter, professional development opportunities, teacher and student awards, a voice at the legislature, and this web site.  You will find parts of this site are available only to members of the GSTA and some are available to non-members.  

Please return often due to new updated materials and please use the resources available.  All have been created for you by fellow science educators in the state.  We seek your contribution to add to these resources.  Together, we can make Georgia a model for science education in the nation.


See the "Upcoming Events for Teachers" tab for ongoing opportunities! If you would like us to post your staff development info, send a link to your event info with a link to a webpage to Zoe Evans, GSTA Webmaster.
