Society for Science & the Public, Research Teachers Conference

Welcome to the Participant Registration System for the Middle School and High School Research Teachers Conferences. We are thrilled you will be joining us at the conference and look forward to hearing your questions, new ideas, and advice over the course of the weekend.

The majority of the breakout sessions at the conference are led by teachers like you, who have intermediate or veteran level experience supporting students in STEM research projects and competitions. We encourage you to consider presenting or serving on a panel.
