This web seminar took place on October 5, 2016, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. The presenters were David Evans, NSTA’s Executive Director, James Brown, the STEM Education Coalition’s Executive Director, and Caroline King, Washington STEM’s Chief Policy and Strategy Officer.
The new federal education law—the Every Student Succeeds Act or ESSA - promises big changes to K-12 science and STEM education teaching and learning. At this joint web seminar - hosted by NSTA, the STEM Education Coalition, and STEMx - state and national STEM leaders will discuss key STEM provisions in ESSA with the goal of informing STEM state leaders, STEM professionals, and science and STEM teachers about the new federal education law. The seminar will also provide tips on how these stakeholders can engage and advocate for STEM programs in their communities and keep STEM education a top priority as states, districts, and schools transition from No Child Left Behind to the Every Student Succeeds Act.
