The John Glenn Center for Science Education will be a $30 million state-of-the-art facility that will serve as a central gathering place for science educators seeking to take the lead on important issues affecting their field. Located minutes from our nation’s capital in Arlington, Virginia, the Glenn Center will advocate for quality science education; provide both a virtual and concrete science education learning center; and enable new teachers, science educators, administrators, and lawmakers to gather for symposia, conferences, and workshops.
A highlight of the building will be a multimedia training and conference facility located on the top floor. It will house a technology-smart webcasting studio for broadcasting programs and hosting virtual meetings on a global scale. Also designed with videoconferencing and audiovisual production capabilities, the Glenn Center’s opportunities to develop and deliver innovative learning resources and programs are endless.
NSTA believes it has a responsibility to respect the environment and demonstrate leadership in environmentally sustainable building practices. The John Glenn Center for Science Education will be a LEED Platinum-Certified green building, incorporating sustainable design elements, construction materials, and building management processes and using them as active learning tools for science educators and K–12 students.
