On July 8, 2014, NASBE is hosting the first of two Regional Symposiums focused on the state goals, policies, and practices of quality science standards such as the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). This one day event will be held July 8, in Louisville, Kentucky.
Participants will learn about the nation’s renewed focus on science education and how NGSS came to be, examine new state student aspirations data on STEM, and explore how to collaborate with existing state and national science and STEM networks. In the afternoon, we will discuss how certain communications strategies can support the vision for quality science education. There will be time to interact with other state board members and build your knowledge about communications and implications of new science standards.
NASBE is able to pay for one night of hotel accommodations, food, and travel for one participant from non-dues paying states, and two participants from dues paying states. States are encouraged to send a team. Non-dues paying states are welcome to bring other colleagues at their state’s expense.
Space is limited, register today!
