Middle School Research Teachers Conference

Bringing middle school research teachers of all experience levels together to share best practices, troubleshoot challenges, and learn more about Society for Science & the Public, DoD STEM competitions, and Broadcom MASTERS.

This annual conference brings 50 middle school STEM teachers to Washington, DC, all-expenses-paid, for a weekend of peer-led professional development. The conference focuses on leading students in research projects that can be entered in local science fair, eCybermission, and other science research competitions.

This free, interactive, peer-led conference will take place virtually, September 11-13, 2020. All middle school teachers who sign up will be invited to attend, with 50 teachers selected via lottery for special programming and opportunities. This subset of teachers will receive conference gear, participate in small group discussions with other teachers, and engage in special social events. The registration for the conference is now closed. Please email Teachers@societyforscience.org with any questions.

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.
