STEM Central

A Community of Practice for NSF STEM Projects

3rd Life Discovery - Doing Science Education Conference

The event takes place March 18-29, 2016.

The theme for the 3rd Life Discovery – Doing Science Conference (LDC) focuses on fostering the Practice of Science, stimulating approaches to Life Science instruction that:

• Connect learning to life science careers in research and practice: What is it like to be a Biologist?
• Connect learning to current events: What is the relevance of Biology?
• Connect learning across institutions and settings: How do we build bridges across education settings?

Call for Proposals now open for Education Share Fair Roundtables.

Researchers and educators –high school through undergraduate – publishers, curriculum developers and all interested in organismal and environmental biology education are welcome to attend. Attendees from all disciplines seeking to connect educational approaches with the rich advances of Biology are also encouraged. Educators of informal educational programs such as nature centers and museums are also welcome.  The LDC seeks to nurture communities of practice among scientists, educators and administrators to prepare the next generation for the dynamic advances in Biology.
