Welcome to the Georgia Science Teachers Association!


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.

Proposals Now Being Accepted for the 2015 Annual Conference


Science for All: Putting the Pieces Together

It is critical to Georgia’s economic and social well-being that all of our students receive an excellent K-12 science education.  To ensure high quality science learning for all students, Georgia’s teachers must skillfully integrate many pieces--Common Core, GPS, science & engineering practices, STEM, TKES, and crosscutting concepts--of the science education puzzle.  This year’s conference will explore how these pieces build on, overlap with, and support one another in the science classroom.  Conference strands will highlight sessions on GPS Within the Framework, Integrating Science Within the CCGPS, and Integrated STEM Education.  though sessions falling outside these strands are welcomed.
