Join us for our  Quarterly Membership Welcome Meeting January 26, 2022

Wednesday, January 26th at 5PM EST

The Quarterly Membership Meetings are one hour virtual networking events and are a way for new members to be introduced to NSELA. You’ll have a chance to meet the NSELA Leadership, your individual Regional Director, as well as network with fellow members of the organization. It is an informal way for you to learn the ropes of the association, all the different ways to get involved, and how to take advantage of all the benefits we have to offer.

NSELA connects and supports emerging and experienced leaders by providing high-quality professional development, a collegial network, access to research and resources, and a voice for leaders in science education. Our members are the lifeblood of the organization -- we couldn’t do it without your time, input, and support!

Registration is FREE for all NSELA members.

Professional Development Opportunity for MS/HS STEM Teachers & Mentors

Posted: Jan. 10, 2022

Society for Science invites any STEM Educator, Mentor or Youth Advocate to apply for the Society for Science Advocate Program, which provides a $3,000 stipend and training to an individual (teacher, scientist, counselor, or mentor) who agrees to serve as an advocate for a minimum of 3 additional students from traditionally underrepresented groups to transition them from conducting scientific or engineering research (science fair-type) projects to completing applications to STEM research competitions. There are four different types of Advocates, which allow both beginners and more advanced applicants to further expand their capabilities to support student research competition participation. 

Many students doing science research are not aware of the myriad of opportunities that are attainable by submitting their work to competitions. Just completing the rigorous application process can inspire confidence in their scientific abilities and lead them to consider a STEM career. Many competitions provide monetary awards for post-secondary education and can boost a student's chance of acceptance into the college or university of their choice. Too few students from traditionally underrepresented groups are presented with these opportunities and often lack the know-how to successfully enter. 

For eligibility information and to apply for the Advocate Program, click here (https://www.societyforscience.org/advocate-grant) . Advocates must already have a formal role with students completing research projects. This program is sponsored by Arconic Foundation, Intel, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, National Geographic, and Regeneron. 

Application Deadline:  March 6, 2022

If efforts to help teachers provide their students with science/STEM education continue, the following safety protocol reminders from earlier NSTA Safety Blog posts can be shared. These protocols hopefully can be useful to teachers to help them better navigate their efforts during these most challenging times in education.
