GSTA's 2019 annual conference will be held February 14-16, 2019 at the Columbus Georgia Convention and Trade Center. Bring your love for science education, and join us for great programming that will help you be your best back in your classroom.

At times, a teacher’s passion can be overwhelmed by frustration, fatigue, and cynicism.  Teachers are lifelong learners that inspire a passion for learning in their students and who inspire children to do great things.  It is important for teachers to not only know what they are doing in their classrooms but also to know why they do it to fuel their passion.  Our passion is what fuels our journey and makes it worthwhile and enjoyable.  This year’s conference is designed to recapture the passion that motivated us to become teachers and to inspire, rekindle, and build the capacity of teachers and educators as we stop and reflect while listening to the stories, insights, and reflections of our fellow educators, experts, and ourselves.  Conference sessions this year will focus on sharing best practices, resources, and ideas based on the following strands:

  • Passionate About Literacy to Fuel Deeper Scientific Understanding
  • Passionate About Real-World Relevance of Science Through STEM/STEAM
  • Passionate About Three-Dimensional Science Practices
  • Local science-focused field trips

Pardon Our Progress

GSTA's site is undergoing major renovations to modernize our site, bring you new resources to support the GSE, and streamline navigation. During this process, you will notice pages missing.  These will be restored with new content ASAP.  Please be patient as we make these changes and check back often to see our progress.

GSTA is committed to supporting excellence in science teaching for the students of Georgia. GSTA works to CONNECT, INFORM, SUPPORT, and ADVOCATE for science teachers in Georgia. We also seek to PARTNER with like-minded formal and informal science education organizations to further GSTA’s mission and goals.
