NARST Annual Conference 2019

March 31, 2019 to April 03, 2019
Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel, Baltimore, MD


NARST is a worldwide organization for improving science teaching and learning through research. The 2019 annual conference, Creating and Sustaining Collective Activism through Science Education Research sets two major challenges before the NARST community. The first is to find new ways to introduce or elevate the presence of activist elements within the work that we do. The second is to consider how our research might become more powerful through engaging others—including those who have traditionally resided outside the community of mainstream science education researchers—in its design, enactment and dissemination. This is a critical time for us as scholars and as members of the NARST community. We must ensure that the work that we do in science education has a deep, powerful and lasting impact on the health, well-being and future of our communities, our countries, and our world.
