February 26-27, 2021

General Conference Information

"The Future of Science Teaching & Learning"

KSTA made the strategic decision, based on CDC guidelines and with the input of our membership, to host our Annual Conference virtually! We are excited to present curated sessions facilitated by experienced presenters, with special guests, vendors, and times for sharing and connecting with other science educators across Kentucky! The Annual Conference is one of the premier science education conferences and a must-attend event for any Kentucky science educator seeking to stay on top of the latest trends and cutting-edge resources.

Why should you attend?

  • With a registration fee of $75 (members) and $100 (non-members) for a possible 7 hours of PD credit, it's an affordable conference.
  • Presenters were hand-selected so that each session will provide resources and ideas to further student learning.
  • All presenters have donated their time to support Kentucky science teachers.
  • Conference attendees will learn about the latest classroom products and resources in the two virtual Vendor Showcase sessions. Vendors have included practicing teachers to lead aspects of the sessions to showcase how the materials apply to the classroom.
  • Keynote speaker Philip Bell is the lead on the STEM Teaching Tools and a well-known science educational speaker.
