NSTA Symposia are high quality learning experiences that begin at NSTA conferences with face-to-face half-day workshops and continue online with web seminars on related topics. Research shows that a blended model of professional development, combing in-person and web-based activities, has a positive impact on teacher practice, providing sustained opportunities for engagement, reflection, and implementation in the classroom. NSTA symposia are designed to enhance both the content knowledge and pedagogical efficacy of participating educators. In-person and online sessions are presented by scientists, engineers, and educational specialists from NSTA partners such as NASA, NOAA, FDA, NSF, and Sally Ride Science. For more information, please send an email to symposia@nsta.org.

The future is bright for careers in STEM. However, too many students in America do not have a strong foundation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to pursue careers in these fields. In this NSTA Virtual Conference we made the case for STEM education by bringing together presenters who have implemented STEM lessons, units, and programs.

On November 7, 2015, over 260 educators nationwide took part in this 4-hour virtual conference. As part of the program, participants learned about three case studies in K-12 STEM Integration from which common goals and practices emerged that informed their work in STEM implementation.

The three case studies (New York, Oregon, and Florida) offered a thought-provoking vision of what “getting to scale with integrated STEM” could look like if we take their lessons to heart and find ways of communicating and collaborating across state boundaries, school subjects, political philosophies, and other barriers to change.
