2017 New Orleans Conference Strand

Innovate Science Education for Tomorrow

Students are often taught science concepts and current issues, but are rarely challenged to create innovative and practical solutions to real-world problems. Students are engaged in the use of technology, but their understanding of the science and engineering behind the function of that technology is limited. PreK–16 science instruction should emphasize the application of science to all career fields, both in theory and in practice. This strand expands participants' understanding of how to foster students' critical-thinking skills and facilitate future problem solving by students.
