    Please join us this year for the "Science Speaks in Nevada" Series


    This series will provide multiple one-hour sessions with local STEM experts designed to increase Nevada educator content knowledge about local science phenomena. The "Science Speaks in Nevada" series is an extension of the Nevada CONNECTS Project from all three Regional Professional Development Programs, the Clark County School District, and the Nevada State Science Teachers Association.

    Educators who participate in each one-hour session completely will have their attendance recorded in ELMS.

    The NSSTA Governing Board voted at their last meeting to create a Governance Committee to look at our growing organization's constitutional bylaws and governance structure.

    This committee will consist of up to 10 current NSSTA Governing Board Members and current NSSTA members who would like to be more involved with the organization.  

    The committee will work both synchronously and asynchronously over the next few months and create a report to present to the NSSTA Governing Board with the potential for a full member vote if there is a proposal to change the NSSTA Constitution.

    Questions about the process or committee?  Email Lori Henrickson

    Interested in applying for the committee? Fill out the committee application:
