    *New* Committee on Ensuring Equitable Access to High Quality Science Learning Opportunities for All Nevada Students

    We are also excited for our new Committee on Ensuring Equitable Access to High Quality Science Learning Opportunities for All Nevada Students. One of our goals as an organization is to ensure Science Teacher voices are in the conversations happening at the state level around science education. We know we can't have high quality STEM or STEAM in Nevada without high quality Science learning opportunities for ALL students, so we want to take a deep look at what is on teachers' "plates" and how useful these things may be in providing that high quality science learning experience for our students.  Please see our flyer below for more information and visit the Committee page to join!
