The call for presentations is out and we are looking for people to present their partnership strategies and successes.  We want to hear about your techniques and expertise in educating learners of all ages.  We want to share your passion for a particular field of study whether it is cockroaches or climate, or vipers or volunteers.

The campus of Northwood University is a picturesque setting near Cedar Hill State Park in southwest Dallas County.  The campus has access to wooded areas with trails, a creek bed, a bedrock road cut, a pond, sports field, outdoor seating areas and of course indoor classrooms with A/V capabilities.

Join the TAEE strand in the 2016 CAST.  

There is still time to be included in the TAEE strand at the 

Conference for the Advancement of Science Teaching (CAST)!  

If you were planning on presenting environmental content anyway, associating it with the TAEE strand will increase visibility for the EE audience.  If you were considering presenting and hesitated to go it alone, this is your chance!

To be included in the TAEE Strand, please email your title and 200 word (max) abstract to Kiki Corry, info@taee.org  by April 1, 2016.  This will give TAEE time to review all the possible sessions and notify you in time to submit it formally through the STAT system.

·         CAST Dates: November 10-12, 2016

·         STAT Proposal submission deadline: April 15, 2016

·         Location: San Antonio, Texas, at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.

·         Audience: 6000 science teachers

Sessions are 1 hour workshops or 3-6 hour short courses.

Proposals must be submitted and approved through STAT’s online system.  However, TAEE will select sessions to make up a diverse strand representative of the best of Environmental Education. 

Please find these tools for composing a successful proposal:

Proposal worksheet – this is what you will be asked to include in the online submission.  Complete it first so you can just copy & paste when you get online.

Scoring rubric – this is provided by STAT so that you can see how it will be scored. Use the “exceeds expectations” column as a guide for what to include.
