SCI-South, SCI-Southwest, and Mississippi ACS Host Regional Meeting in Jackson MS: September 29, 2017

Hosted at UNC Asheville, the Sencer Center of Innovation-South is a community of educators dedicated to the teaching of science at all levels through the SENCER values and pedagogies. Our mission is to promote STEM education that engages the challenging and complex social and civic issues we face today, and conversely to engage these challenges and complexities through the lens of science and scientific method. Although we offer support for grant collaborations, workshops, regional meetings, and other forms of consultation to schools and organizations across the U.S., we primarily engage the Southern region (North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas).
