Conference Theme: Learning in Unique Contexts
The theme is simply meant to acknowledge that, while our organization exists to support the development of highly qualified science teachers and educators -more so now than ever before- our conception of learning in general, and the learning of science in particular, needs to be broad, inclusive, and not confined to our traditional classroom. We seek to value learning in all of its forms and this meeting and conference hopes to highlight the diverse ways that we seek to develop scientific understanding in students, existing educators and those seeking to join the profession.
Mike Dentzau, SASTE 2015 President and Conference Chair

Columbus is an authentic rivertown. Today, the river is home to the 15-mile trail known as the Chattahoochee RiverWalk. The RiverWalk provides an excellent facility to bike, in-line skate, jog, or just take a leisurely stroll and enjoy the scenery. For outdoor enthusiasts, you'll find swimming, tubing, whitewater rafting, boating, kayaking, zip lines and more.
A variety of fine attractions include the State Theatre of Georgia, the historic Springer Opera House; Port Columbus Civil War Naval Museum; the National Infantry Museum; The Columbus Museum; the beautiful Historic District and spectacular architecture of the MidTown Historic District; and the Coca-Cola Space Science Center.
