2016 PAESTA Science Conference

Saturday, November 19, 2016 – Penn State Brandywine, Media, PA
Registration deadline: November 1st

In February 2016, The New York Times reported that “Science Teachers’ Grasp of Climate Change Is Found Lacking.”

The article is based upon a paper published in the journal Science by Eric Plutzer and others titled “Climate confusion among U.S. teachers.”

Keeping these reports in mind and wanting to address the need for increasing climate science content knowledge with K-12 teachers, PAESTA is introducing a new format for its fall conference in 2016. The PAESTA Science Conference will have three invited scientists come speak to PAESTA members about the basics of climate science, how scientists are currently studying climate, the climate of Pennsylvania, and the climate and possible habitability of exoplanets.
