We would like to invite you to participate in CONASTA 67, the annual science education conference of the Australian Science Teachers Association (ASTA). In 2018 CONASTA will be hosted by the Science Teachers Association of New South Wales (STANSW) and held at the University of Sydney from 8-11 July.

The CONASTA 67 theme of ‘Spotlight on our future’ has been chosen to inspire all educators to focus on the influence of science on our lives. CONASTA 67 will celebrate the successes of science, particularly Australian science, and will explore the vital role of science in our future.

As the major science education event in Australia, CONASTA has a strong reputation for offering high quality and stimulating professional learning experiences for science teachers, school laboratory technicians/managers and others with an interest in science education. Our delegates include representatives from all Australian states and territories, government and non-government schools, all years of schooling and from metropolitan, rural and remote locations.

ASTA and STANSW are committed to delivering a conference that meets the essential need for engagement, professional development and support amongst science teacher and laboratory technician communities. The vital role of Science, Engineering, Technology and Maths (STEM) in Australia’s future is unquestionable, and the foundation of STEM excellence rests with Australia’s STEM educators.
