High School Research Teachers Conference

High School Research Teachers Conference

Bringing research teachers of all experience levels together to share best practices, troubleshoot challenges, and learn more about the Society for Science & the Public and the Regeneron Science Talent Search.

Each year we invite 200 teachers to attend the conference in Washington, DC, all-expenses paid.

COVID-19 UPDATE: This year’s conference will take place virtually October 2-4, 2020. Attending virtually this year will not prevent future eligibility to attend in person. Signing up provides eligibility for year-round opportunities from the Society, so all high school teachers who have interest in student research should sign up!

Sign up by September 30 to attend.

“This experience has already greatly impacted the support for my students. They are able to conduct projects and experiments I didn’t think would be possible because of limitations and we can take project ideas further just by some of the knowledge I gained at the conference.”

“Overall this is the best conference I have ever attended as a teaching professional. It was well planned and executed. The sense of collegiality, professionalisms, willingness to share knowledge and resources was unparalleled. I went home and shared so much with my entire school community. All of it appreciated. Thank you!”

“This was simply the best conference I have attended in my 16 year career. How rejuvenating to be with likeminded teachers who have the same goals and challenges in their classrooms. I am no longer on a remote island–I’m part of an archipelago!”

Connect your Students with Society Alumni

Society for Science & the Public is thrilled to connect STEM professionals and STEM-focused college students with classrooms across the country.  Many of the Society alumni, who are now pursuing degrees or careers in STEM, have expressed a desire to give back to their communities and inspire more students in STEM. Classroom teachers associated with our programs have often expressed a need for more STEM role models for their students and stronger connections to the professional scientific community. Due to the challenging academic circumstances created by the COVID-19 epidemic, we’re launching a program to help provide a unique STEM educational experience for virtual classrooms.
