Celebrating 50 Years of Inspiring

Science Education in Georgia!

Calling all STEAM educators and organizations who want to

ignite passion in science education!

Join us for an unprecedented golden celebration of five decades dedicated to fostering curiosity, innovation, collaboration, and discovery in classrooms across Georgia. We are calling for proposals that provide opportunities for teachers to dive into dynamic workshops, engage with leading educators, and collaborate across disciplines to elevate science education.

Share how you make science education "Au"some!

The Georgia Science Teachers Association is hosting its annual conference at the Columbus Convention and Trade Center on Thursday and Friday, January 30 and 31, 2025. The theme for the conference is Celebrating 50 Years of Inspiring Science Education in Georgia.

Science informs exploration and the world but does not do so in isolation. As we celebrate our golden anniversary, we want to usher in the next generation of science education by promoting collaboration, literacy, and advocacy.  

The conference is a time for STEAM educators from across the state to come together to share ideas, strategies, and professional resources to support one another thereby improving student learning.

We are hosting an "Au"inspring event by putting together a conference program featuring sessions focused on the following strands: 

  • Students’ Science Journies Celebrating 21st Century 3D Learning
  • Science in Literacy
  • AI in Science
  • Bringing the Team to STEAM
  • Advocating for Science in Georgia

If you are interested in presenting at the conference, we invite you to submit a proposal by Thursday, October 31, 2024 Proposals will be evaluated on the extent to which they:

  • engage participants in the interdisciplinary teaching of science,
  • ensure that the session proposal aligns with GSTA's position statements,
  • support implementation of specific Georgia Standards of Excellence or tenets of the NRC Framework, and/or
  • support at least one conference strand

The selection committee will give priority to proposals that support at least one conference strand. Proposal submissions are open to GSTA members and nonmembers.
