Our Mission: To enhance science teaching and empower teachers of science

MAST wants to see you at the 

2020 NSTA National Conference on Science Education
Boston, April 2-5 2020. 

Science educators, specialists, researchers, students and industry professionals will gather from across the United States and the world for an opportunity to access:

● over 1,200 workshops, demonstrations, and presentations covering every discipline, grade level, and teaching focus from grades preK–16.

● nationally renowned speakers address the hottest topics in science education.

● latest scientific research breakthroughs from experts in the field.

To assist all Massachusetts Science Educators in seeking funding from their administrators, MAST has created two financial support letters that educators may use in their request for funding. 
Our Financial Support Letter, provides extensive detail of the conference strands and data on why attending professional development conferences are so important.

The One Pager Support Letter is concise and highlights the conference strands and touches on the importance of professional development. 

You can learn about the Next Generation Science, Technology, and Engineering MCAS from this slide presentation from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
