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.

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;
  • Collaborate with the NSTA elected leaders and staff.
