Contact a member of our board for more information on PSTA, or to get involved!
We are at a critical time in Pennsylvania. It is time to push forward with the adoption of the Next Generation Science Standards and finally end the confusion about which set of science standards to use. NGSS are beautiful laid out and offer crosscutting themes to connect with math, English/Language arts and dare I say, Social Studies. As Science and/or STEM educators, PSTA members should be taking the lead in showing that teaching an individual subject no longer works, but that we must work across the hallways and help students realize that all subjects are intertwined and will only help them in their future.
I challenge each of you to seriously consider joining a PSTA committee or the PSTA board of directors (we have moved to more web-based meetings to save time and money in travel expenses). PSTA is changing with the times and with the integration of the young, enthusiastic board members with new ideas and the wisdom of the mature, enthusiastic board members that continue to work with PSTA, we have a very bright future ahead of us.
Have a great school year.

PSTA President 2017 and 2018
