This past December the NYS Board of Regents approved the New York State Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS); STANYS was one of the lead partners in developing NYSSLS and the plan for implementation in New York.
STANYS’s Annual Conference held in Rochester spans three days with workshop opportunities over ten sessions, keynote speakers, exhibits, and field trips. The 122nd STANYS Annual Conference, November 4-6, 2017, will be the best place in New York State to find out what is going on in science education. The focus of the Conference will be on Science – Now in 3-D (Three Dimensional Learning) as teachers begin to prepare for the NYS Education Department’s implementation of the NYSSLS. What better place to learn about this new constructivist approach!
At the Annual Conference’s Exhibit you will have an opportunity to meet with company representatives and learn about their company’s:
- Advancement of scientific products / technologies aligned with the NYSSLS
- Impact on the environment
- Educational programs/activities for K-12 science teachers and or students
- Scholarships for high school to attend summer science workshops / research programs
We hope you will make every effort to attend this year’s Conference so you will be able to share the information you acquire with you colleagues.
