Dear Science Education Friends and Colleagues,
First, on behalf of our board and members, we hope that this e-mail finds you and yours doing well and healthy! In these challenging times, we recognize that there is incredible value and supporting each other, working together and sharing as much as possible. Recently, the California Association of Science Educators (CASE, formerly CSTA) made the strategic decision, based in science and with the interest of our members, partners and supporters, to continue to move forward with the 2020 California Science Education Conference, but do so by transitioning to a virtual platform.
In making the decision to “go virtual” CASE also decided to take steps to not simply host a series of webinars, but rather to provide a platform for a truly robust and interactive virtual conference complete with keynote addresses, live workshops, focus speakers, a tradeshow, on demand workshops, and opportunities to connect and build relationships with our science education colleagues. In doing so, we have also realized that this virtual conference provides an opportunity for our science education colleagues and friends from throughout the country and beyond to be able to join us without having to bear the cost of travel to California. We all wish that we could be together in person, but this is a new and exciting way for us all to connect and learn together!
This lead us to an exciting invitation for you and your members. So, please share the following amongst your members and colleagues.
CASE is extending the offer of membership rates to our fellow science education associations throughout the country as a gesture of partnership and cooperation to provide science teachers with greater access to high-quality professional learning opportunities. (This is an almost $75 savings off of non-member rates!)
To take advantage of this great offer, your members simply need to:
· Navigate to website: https://conference.cascience.org/
· Follow the link to “Register Today!”
· Begin the process and when prompted select the Non-Member registration type.
· Utilize the following Promo Code when prompted: StatePartners20
· Finish the registration process and get ready for an exciting and enlightening conference!
We are so excited about the conference and look forward to having you and your members join us and to experience the great learning that we will all be able to do, together!
