EXCITING NEWS...California Science Education Conference Is Going Virtual!

OCTOBER 16 - 18, 2020 | Everywhere, Worldwide, Your Comfy Couch

We're Going Virtual and WE CAN'T WAIT!

On behalf of the members of the 2020 Committee for the California Science Education Conference and the Board of Directors for the California Association of Science Educators (CASE), we are excited to share the news with you that this year's conference will be taking place virtually. The decision to make this move is one that we have taken seriously and is based in science and the utmost safety for our attendees, presenters, exhibitors, and all those working to bring the conference together.

We recognize that having had the opportunity to be together in Palm Springs would have been ideal; however, we are very excited about the prospect of offering even more sessions, you having the opportunity to attend and experience more aspects of the conference, and for us to continue to deliver the highest quality professional development possible. Over the coming months as we lead up to October, we will be working hard to design and implement new ways for you to continue to receive every bit of value that you would in attending an in-person conference. That means that we are looking at high-quality education sessions, world class speakers, practical information for you to take back to your classroom and/or your digital learning space, and as always, an opportunity to connect and network with friends and other science educators from around the state and beyond.

In the coming weeks there will be more information that will be shared with you as it relates to speakers and presenters, the structure of the overall conference, and great ways that you can become involved in the lead up, during the event and beyond. We know that these times are changing and along with it, we are too! We look forward to sharing all the great aspects of the science education conference with you, just in a new way.

Please be on the lookout for more information, regular updates and the best way to get registered today!

2020 Call for Proposals Now Closed

The 2020 California Science Education Conference Call for Proposals is now closed. We received an overwhelming number of submissions and are excited to begin the review process. Thank you so much for your time and interest.

Submitting a proposal does not guarantee that you will be selected as a presenter. Your proposal will be reviewed by two members of the CASE Board of Directors and 2020 Conference Committee. Proposals will be selected for presentation based on reviewer scores and the content needs of the conference.

Please note: California Science Education Conference proposal review process is completed blind and by a peer group of educators. Please see the Proposal Scoring Rubric for additional details.

CASE will be issuing notices regarding proposal status (accepted or declined) in the summer. If you will not have access to the email account associated with your CASE log-in over the summer months, please contact our office to update your email address.

Questions should be directed to Rachel Myers, Conference Coordinator via email at rachel@cascience.org.
