National Congress on Science Education

National Congress on Science Education logoThe National Congress on Science Education meets annually and consists of one voting delegate from each of the 94 NSTA Chapters and Associated Groups. The Congress meets to discuss issues and bring forth recommendations that may be of interest to NSTA and the science education community. Delegates and other local leaders benefit from attending the summer congress, which provides opportunities to

  • Network with other science leaders from the US and Canada;
  • Attend leadership workshops to assist them in their association role;
  • Represent their members as a voting delegate;
  • Attend focus groups to address national issues and formulate debate and adopt resolutions;
  • Meet and work with the NSTA elected leaders and staff.
