Dear Alabama Educators,
The STEM disciplines; Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics are strategically important for employment and for our economy. The Alabama Science Teachers Association is providing leadership to disseminate research-informed best practices in teaching and learning for all STEM disciplines through MISSION: iScience, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Mission: iSTEM will take place at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama, February 14-16, 2013.
APT is pleased to support the work of The Alabama Science Teachers Association and to participate in this conference. In addition to presenting workshops designed to help you use APTPLUS STEM content more effectively in the classroom, during this conference we will award the first APT iSTEM Teaching Award to honor a teacher who effectively uses APT STEM content to engage students in the learning process. We hope you will be able to join us at this exciting event! To register, go to: http://aptplus.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=40e4e3c446984ebb0f13b7658&id=606cffe851&e=ad28b90c60
All stakeholders-- teachers, researchers, educational administrators, higher education and the business community—are invited to participate in this vitally important endeavor, so please feel free to forward this email to interested parties.
