If you’ve visited the NSTA website recently, you may have noticed a few changes.
When we unveiled our new name last year (moving from the National Science Teachers Association to the National Science Teaching Association) and our logo refresh in January, we knew we would need to update our home on the web. But the new NSTA site is more than just a pretty face—in these unprecedented times, our goal is to make it easier than ever for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) educators to find what they need to deliver quality learning experiences to students. Whether you’re a classroom teacher, a museum educator, an afterschool program manager, or none of the above, if you teach STEM, NSTA is here to support you.
The following resources may be especially useful to you as you provide distance learning during the COVID-19 crisis:
NSTA might look a little different these days, but our goal is still the same: to promote excellence and innovation in science teaching and learning for all. Despite the current difficulties we are all facing, NSTA believes that STEM educators can still provide high-quality learning experiences for students, and we hope our new website and resources will make it easier for all teachers—in-school or out-of-school—to do so.
