NSTA Symposia are high quality learning experiences that begin
at NSTA Conferences and continue online after the face-to-face half-day opportunity,
designed to enhance teachers’ knowledge of both science content and best teaching
practices. The symposia are standards-based and presented by scientists, engineers,
and educational specialists from NSTA partners, such as NASA, NOAA, FDA, NSF, and
Sally Ride Science.
Each symposium is followed by two NSTA
Web Seminars within two months of the conference. These online programs
extend the interactivity between the participants and presenters at the conference.

Why We Use this Symposia Model?
NSTA designed its symposia knowing that if professional development is to be truly
effective, it must move beyond the isolated, one-shot training session. Many experts
in professional staff development, e-learning, and instructional technology stress
the benefits of providing a blended approach—one that combines face-to-face and
online opportunities for learning.
That’s why each NSTA symposium is followed by two Web Seminars. These free online
seminars are live 90-minute sessions of professional development. They give you
a chance to interact with and learn more from scientists, education experts, and
NSTA Press authors who presented at the symposia.
Funding for the NSTA Symposia is provided in part by NASA, the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the
National Science Foundation (NSF), Sally Ride Science, and NSTA Press. For more
