Nebraska K-12 Science Education Summit

The upcoming statewide K-12 Science Education Summit is Dec. 12, 2016, at Nebraska Innovation Campus in Lincoln. This event will provide an opportunity for science education stakeholders from across the state, including NDE officials, school district science directors, ESU science staff developers, science teacher educators, K-12 science teachers, and UNL faculty and students, to learn about the Next Generation Science Standards and engage with members of Nebraska’s science education community.

District administrators, school principals and teachers (K-12) who are leaders in science education are invited to attend. The event is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Dec. 12. Please spread the word to your colleagues. Register by November 17 at go.unl.edu/nesciencesummit.

Do you know someone who has innovative elementary, middle, or high school science instructional resources or educational materials (curricula, online learning tools, strategies, assessments, etc.) to share with science teachers and participants? If so, have them request to showcase, present, and demonstrate their resources at the event. Submit a presentation proposal by November 17 at go.unl.edu/nesciencesummit. We look forward to a highly engaging and productive event.
