Conferences & Events



The latest in science content, teaching strategy, and research to enhance and expand your professional growth

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to collaborate with science education leaders and your peers. Each year, NSTA hosts a national conference on science education (in the spring), three area conferences (in the fall), and a STEM Forum & Expo. This year we offered NSTA Engage: Spring21 in lieu of our face-to-face national conference, and the NSTA STEM21 virtual conference is scheduled in July in lieu of the face-to-face STEM Forum & Expo.
