This Year We Are Together In Science 

Welcome!  The 2021 Champions For Science virtual conference series is for secondary science educators who understand that collaboration and communication extend beyond the classroom, and who are looking to bring experiences, opportunities, and inspiration to their students. This year's professional development series will provide an opportunity to learn and collaborate among top educators, brilliant science communicators, risk-taking innovators, and inspiring authors. I hope you will join us as we come together in science to share successful strategies, best practices, engaging resources, and of course enthusiasm so you are ready to take on the school year! We know that this past year you've been amazing and strong alone.

This year let's be unstoppable together in science.

 - Dr. Erica Colón, Host of Champions For Science

Champions For Science 2021 Series Includes:

The CFS Middle School virtual conference offers professional development for teachers who are dedicated to working with students, ages 11-15, that are learning to balance physical, emotional, and cognitive changes.  Join other champions for middle school science as we share age-appropriate and engaging strategies, lessons, and resources that help develop new science skills through experiential learning while ensuring an enthusiasm for science.

Middle School TICKETS available now!

The CFS High School virtual conference provides professional development for high school science teachers who are dedicated to meeting the learning needs of young adult learners.  Join us for amazing sessions that will model and support science literacy in understanding the world and its challenges.  Teaching and learning strategies will be shared that not only provide opportunities for critical thinking and decision-making, but that also promote scientific, engineering, and technological literacy.

High School TICKETS available now!

Demo Days is the hallmark event in the CFS virtual learning series. This innovative professional development is geared toward all secondary science educators. Knowing that students need to explore through hands-on phenomena, investigations, and experiments, Demo Days focuses solely on providing sessions centered around demos, labs, and engineering activities.  Presenters will not just deliver the final product but will share set-up, safety, material management, student misconceptions, modifications, and special instructions as needed.  Attendees will leave with an enormous bank of new hands-on explorations, as well as a workbook full of labs that you can photocopy/download and use with your class immediately!
