Conference Theme: 21st Century Science Education in the South: Spotlight on the people and places where we teach
What does it mean to teach science in the South? As an organization dedicated to quality science teacher education in the Southern United States, SASTE is in the unique position of providing direction to both science teachers and science teacher educators on how best to meet the needs of a truly, uniquely regional population.
This year’s Annual SASTE Meeting—held at the Coastal Georgia Center in historic Savannah, GA—will focus on the multifaceted and complex nature of teaching science in the South. We invite proposals which focus on questions of what it means to teach and learn science in the South, including considerations of place, culture, language, politics, policy, or faith—and how all of these factors influence classroom practice.
Consider submitting a POSITION PAPER addressing our conference theme. Graduate student and faculty papers are invited; click the Position Papers link at left to learn more.
NOMINATIONS ARE NOW OPEN for the Shrum Award, Rod Nave Award, and Deborah Tippins Mentor Award. Click the navigation links at left to learn more.
Join us at SASTE 2014 in Savannah - "a favorite of visitors enthralled by the azaleas and Spanish moss-covered live oaks of the historic squares, the quaint atmosphere of the cobblestoned waterfront, the tranquility of nearby marshlands and beaches and the free-flowing Southern hospitality." I look forward to seeing you at the Coastal Georgia Center!
