The 2019 VAST Professional Institute will focus on the theme: STEM Starts with Science. We will be examining the role of science in the United States and in public education and sharing ways to make your classroom science become more engaging and motivating. We will also examine the connections between science and engineering, technology, and mathematics and how to strengthen those connections in our classrooms. We will also be preparing teachers to engage with the new 2018 Science Standards of Learning and the skills in the new Profile of a Graduate that are an integral part of the new standards.
* In addition to presentations related to our theme there will be concurrent session presentations in all subject areas for grades K-12.
* Attend the 3 general sessions featuring speakers who will challenge you with up-to-date scientific discoveries and instructional strategies.
* Interact with vendors in our Exhibit Hall as you collect samples of new instructional materials and explore cutting-edge technologies.
* As an added bonus you can shop for cool science themed stuff.
