NJSC: Celebrating 46 Years of Service to Science Education
On behalf of the New Jersey Science Convention Steering Committee, we welcome you to the 46th Annual science convention. The convention has a history of providing science teachers in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania with professional development over the course of two days. Our goal is to provide a variety of sessions over two days addressing K-12 three dimensional/NGSS lessons in all science areas, and those demonstrating methods of creating culturally responsive science classrooms that promote equity and inclusion, engage students in climate change through research, discourse, and problem solving and include the explanation and exploration of local problems.
Please join us for one or two days at the NJ Science Convention and for our Tuesday night banquet. This year we are pleased to present as our banquet speaker Dr. John Wilkin from the Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. “Dr. Wilkin is a member of NASA’s Ocean Surface Topography Science Team (OSTST) and is active in promoting uses of radar altimetry in the coastal ocean. He represents OSTST on the Global Ocean Data Assimilation Experiment (GODAE) Science Team (GOVST). Wilkin also co-chairs the User Working Group for NASA’s Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center (PO-DAAC), and is a member of the Ocean Observing panel for Physics and Climate (OOPC) of the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS).” https://marine.rutgers.edu/team/john-wilkin/ In alignment with our 2022 theme, Dr. Wilken will share his presentation on the future of coastal ocean environmental forecasting.
If you are looking for new classroom ideas and strategies or if you are willing to share your successes with colleagues join us and catch the energy of the New Jersey Science Convention.
