Theme: Next Generation Science Standards

This conference is designed for high school science teachers across all disciplines – physics, environmental science, Earth/Space science, chemistry, and biology. We are still in the process of finalizing speakers at this time but, as we have done for the past many years, are working to have a program that involves all areas of the sciences and a mix of activity-based and concept-based sessions.  This year we will be focusing our sessions on the Next Generation Science Standards with a panel discussion as our main afternoon session.

As in the past, verification forms for CPDU credit will be awarded participants at this meeting. This should prove to be another informative and rewarding conference and we look forward to you joining us.

Our sponsors for this event include the Illinois Science Teachers Association (, Scope Shoppe (, and Flinn Scientific ( ).

Please fill out the registration form immediately and send it in while you are still thinking about it. A luncheon is included in the cost of the conference. The conference registration fee is $35.
