The National Science Teachers Association First Ever STEM Forum & EXPO was held May 17 – 19 in Atlantic City New Jersey. I found the conference a valuable resource for networking, teaching materials, and for rejuvenation of my passion for teaching & learning STEM. I would like to thank the National Science Teachers Association and the members of the conference steering committee for providing this excellent professional development opportunity for all teachers, and for giving us hope that the research-based recommendations of the 1996 National Science Education Standards will at last be finally implemented in our nation’s schools. We have come a long way since 1996, and we still have a long way to go. Video and links to resources below shed light on the what, the why, the how, and the what if, of the Next Generation Science Standards. Enjoy!
