Join science educators for a 1-day science conference to explore best practices and effective tools to design and redesign how we teach science in all settings (face-to-face, virtual, and hybrid). Conference strands include leading science, embedding STEM practices, supporting diverse learners, incorporating pedagogy, and teaching science content.

We will have five general strands:

  • Leading Science - This strand will be geared toward coaching, mentoring, leading PD, and change management.
  • Embedding STEM Practices - This strand will focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It will also address the new scientific and engineering practices being embedded into our content TEKS. The Engineering Design Process and Project-based Learning belongs here too.
  • Supporting Diverse Learners - This strand will focus on Universal Design for Learning and providing equitable access to all students and sub-populations (GT, ELs, etc.).
  • Incorporating Pedagogy - This strand will include instructional strategies, digital tools/tech integration, and accelerated instruction.
  • Teaching Science Content - This strand will include sessions on the TEKS revision, building teacher background knowledge, and addressing misconceptions.
