WSTA 2017  Annual Conference

3-Dimensional Learning in the Tri-Cities

Exhibitor Registration  IS CLOSED

WE CANNOT ACCEPT ANY MORE EXHIBITORS

The Washington Science Teachers’ Association (WSTA) invites you to join us as an exhibitor at our annual conference, October 20 to 22, 2017.  We will be at Chiawana High School in Pasco, A wonderful new school building outstanding for personal contact with all the attendees.

  In the heart of Washington State's Science, Engineering and Technology hub , it is an ideal location for Washington Science Teachers to gather and gain insight into Science education. 

In addition the conference gives teachers opportunities to explore the new Next Generation Science Standards, science instructional materials and engage in dialogue with science professionals through workshops and exhibits. 

The State of Washington continues to move forward with STEM and NGSS teaching, and our keynote speaker is the new Superintendent of Public Instruction Chris Reykdal to speak on education in our state.

We expect another great turnout of science and STEM teachers in all subjects and grade levels and we hope you can join us!

Give a Presentation 


In addition to being an exhibitor; consider being a presenter at the conference. We are looking for presentations coordinated with the conference theme, “3-D Learning in the Tri-Cities."  This is a chance for any grade level, any subject to be presented. 

Presentations need to address the Next Generation Science Standards adopted by Washington State. They should also fall into one of our strands for the conference. Presentations that are hands-on/minds-on are encouraged. Please remember that the presentation in educational for our attendees and not a time to sell product.  Below is the link for the call for proposals.

After September 15th, 2017 we can still accept exhibitors on a first come first served basis, and not guaranteed, and for an additional 25% fee BUT we would still love to have you.

Your Role as Exhibitor


Those involved in education, teaching professionals and those providing material support, share common interests. One of these interests is sharing new products, techniques, and innovative ideas to enhance the educational process. 

Attendees to the conference enthusiastically visit the Exhibits Area to consider new products and ideas demonstrated by WSTA exhibitors. To insure a high flow of traffic by your booth will be in a large room open to the entrance foyer.  This room will be the central gathering place for the conference. 

We will also have a reception Saturday afternoon in this hall.  This has been well attended and has been a positive experience for attendees and the exhibitors.
