Welcome to the Georgia Science Teachers Association!


Georgia Science...Engage!

Present or Exhibit at 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

Like everything we do, though, this conference couldn't happen without our members. We need you to engage your teacher leadership and share your great ideas in our conference sessions. 

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.

GSTA Wants to Recognize Outstanding Science Teachers, Student, and Administrators


GSTA is proud to bring our STEMtalk student video competition back in 2016 to coincide with the Georgia STEM Forum. The competition gives K-12 students in Georgia the opportunity to share their thoughts about how their STEM learning experiences are shaping their futures. To enter the competition, students create a TEDx-style video that is under five minutes long to answer the question, How is STEM shaping your future? Winning students will be invited to speak at the 2016 STEM Forum in Athens. The competition requires a short turnaround, so get your students started immediately. All submissions are due Friday, September 16th, 2016, by 11:59 pm. Find additional information on the GSTA STEMtalk webpage.
