    Jim Kaufman has graciously agreed to offer a science safety webinar for our members on Oct 23rd at 2pm CT. If you have topics or questions you’d like to have discussed, please complete this brief (one answer) form: https://forms.gle/pHbKjCaJKeb2xLA77. I know I get ongoing questions about chemical storage and disposal, using bodily fluids in labs (e.g. cheek cells), and liability.

    • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (EST)
    • ZOOM Meeting

    We are excited to share an opportunity for us to connect and learn from some recent research conducted through the ACESSE Project. The research literature is sparse about what state agency leaders should prioritize or even how they should conceptualize their work. Knowing this, we worked with several state leaders to study the levers that might influence more equitable and coherent systems of science education in our states. What levers provide the biggest results? In what conditions are levers likely to yield or not yield results? These may be questions you’ve been wondering in your role as a state leader. We are now happy to share some initial results that are sure to be helpful in answering questions like these.

    Please join us for a 1-hour conversation on November 7th about the research and results. This conversation will be valuable for any state leader embarking on initiatives to implement the vision of The Framework for K-12 Science Education, new state standards, or new assessments. We encourage all members to attend as our associate and affiliate members play a vital role in supporting and leading state-wide work.
