2017 Northwest Nevada Math & Science Conference Speaker Proposal
The Northwest Nevada Math & Science Conference will be on Saturday, October 21, 2017. The Conference will be held in Reno, Nevada.

We are seeking conference proposals at this time. The proposals will be accepted until June 9, 2017.

There will be three 90-minute breakout sessions and a Keynote address.

Presenters will receive membership to both the Nevada State Science Teachers Association (NSSTA) and the Northern Nevada Math Council (NNMC), as well as free registration to the conference (this will not include lunch fees).

After your proposal has been accepted you will receive a special link to register - do not register with the main attendee registration.

The conference strands are:

STEM and the NVACS: Synergy in the Classroom

Nevada’s new standards (CCSS and NGSS) contain multiple opportunities for linking STEM into the classroom. Presentations in this strand will focus on the creation of real-world lessons that allow students to utilize science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in context so that students make connections to school, community, work and globalization.

Innovation and Persistence: The Power of Failure

Failure is not all bad! Reflections and review assist in more wisdom and increased knowledge often more than successes. Presentations in this strand focus on all learners (educators and students) learning from experiences within the classroom and its lessons. Reflection – in – Action (Schön, 1987) can be fostered in student and educators through the use of real problems that allow for the making of mistakes, reflecting on those mistakes, and refining answers through persistence and innovation.

Equitable Access to the NVACS

All students should have equal opportunities to learn. Presentations in this strand focus on inclusion for diverse populations within the mainstream of education, as well as providing systematic help for those falling behind. All students can achieve and it is our duty to provide meaningful, accessible experiences to maximize their k-12 success. Elements that link school and home so that disadvantaged families can help their students succeed are recommended.

We invite you to submit sessions that addresses one of these three strands.
