Our theme - “Transforming Innovations into Reality in Science”
STANYS ANNUAL SPONSORS
"Transformation in science education is revolutionary because it represents new ways of thinking about teaching and learning. Any effective transformation of science teaching rests with the teacher and the interactions with the students.
Transforming Innovations into Reality in Science (TIRS) is where the rubber hits the road - in our science classrooms. TIRS involves organizing instruction around compelling phenomena. Just as curiosity sparks innovation, teachers use the student’s curiosity to engage them in three-dimensional learning.
Join your fellow teachers of science around the TIRS theme at the 2019 STANYS conference November 2-4 in Rochester. As you are willing to use evidence-based principles for teaching and learning, it will create new exciting opportunities for your professional growth." Kenneth Huff, STANYS President

Victor Sampson teaches both undergraduate and graduate level science education courses that focus on how people learn, instructional design, and assessment.
Come join him as he shares his current focus of how students participate in argumentation in the context of science, engineering, and mathematics and ways to make the interactions that take place between students, materials, and ideas more productive in terms of learning.
