The New Jersey Science Convention (www.njscienceconvention.org) will be hosting its 45th Annual Convention on October 19, 20, 2021 at the Princeton Marriott Forrestal in Princeton, NJ. For the past 44 years this convention has provided the best professional development and science education information to thousands of NJ teachers. For NJSC 2021 we anticipate a return to and in person event with safety recommendations in place. The New Jersey Science Convention is the only local science-based professional development opportunity for NJ K-12 classroom teachers.
NJSC 2021 represents an exceptional opportunity for K-12 science teachers to experience interactive and hands on professional development focusing on implementation of NJ Student Learning Standards – Science/Next Generation Science Standards, effective classroom instruction and authentic 3 D assessment strategies, integration of technology, and the latest information on classroom resources. This year our focus is: Climate Change: Its Impact on Human Society and Climate Change: Impacts in New Jersey.
In addition to presentations by experienced classroom teachers, NJSC 2021 will also host presentations by NJDOE and college professors along with national speakers and presenters. The unique venue provides a level of interaction that allows teachers to connect with colleagues from schools all over New Jersey and maintain on going collaboration. In alignment with NJSLS-S/NGSS, the NJ Science Convention provides K-12 science teachers with professional development that supports the type of science teaching needed to prepare students for a competitive global society.
The members of the NJ Science Convention Steering Committee encourage districts to support their teachers by providing the opportunity for them to participate in NJSC 2021. Teachers who attend return to their students energized with new and exciting ideas, instructional techniques, and a better understanding of the new science standards. We hope to see you in October!
