January 2018

Happy New Year WSTA!

As we start 2018, let’s take a brief moment to reflect about all of the wonderful things that took place during 2017. The beginning of each year is also a great time to plan out the remaining twelve months in hopes to organize our lives.

A year in review of 2017 highlights so many wonderful events and activities. 

ENGAGEMENT IN WSTA

There was multiple professional learning opportunities around Washington state ranging from NGSS 3D strands, Science Cafes and Oly Science and Brews!, and many, many others.  Attendees praised these events stating, "Great way to look at a single DCI and follow it through K-12." As well as, "I feel so much better about NGSS and beginning to figure out how to incorporate them in my teaching. Thank you!"

Over 300 people met up at Chiawana High School in Pasco, WA for the 2017 Annual Conference.  A huge thank you to the administration and staff at Chiawana High School and to all of the people that made this 2017 conference a success. The 2017 conference program is available to review exhibitors and speakers information.

The leadership within WSTA was part of a joint effort of the chapters from California, Nevada, and Oregon to compose the white paper, “Priority Features of NGSS-Aligned Instructional Materials: Recommendations for Publishers, Reviewers and Educators”. 

SAVE THE DATES

WSTA members, be sure to block out the time October 18-21, 2018.  Washington Science Fellows will be convening October 18-19, 2018 and the WSTA Annual Conference will be on October 20-21.  Both of these events will be held in beautiful Bellingham, WA!

We are excited to showcase the majestic scenery of northwest Washington and the wonderful work in science education happening in this part of the state.  Future science conferences include the NSTA regional conference in Seattle, WA in December 2019, and the WSTA annual conference in Wenatchee, Fall 2020.

Finally, if you are interesting in serving on the leadership team, elections are coming up.  Please consider being a part of WSTA and supporting teachers across Washington state.  Have a wonderful rest of the school year and see you at a WSTA event!

Thank you for all you do for science education!

Respectfully,


 

Andy Boyd

WSTA President 2017 – 2019
