The NCSSS Professional Conference is all about connection and collaboration. This annual event brings together teachers, administrators, and counselors in STEM education to share best practices with other STEM professionals to transform education, empower teachers and improve STEM students’ success.

2023 Professional Conference Information

November 12-15, 2023

Registration is opening Wednesday, May 17!

Attendees have the opportunity to attend over 60 concurrent sessions in strands that are relevant to today’s STEM professionals. Topics covered affect all schools and allow teachers and administrators to collaborate outside their classrooms, regardless of physical location.

Attendees from previous Professional Conferences enjoyed trips to member schools, receptions at makerspaces and were honored at our Awards Luncheon.

During the Conference, we also recognize our most innovative students, teachers, and partnerships with our annual awards ceremony at the Conference.

Participating in the Professional Conference gives you actionable ideas you can immediately implement in your schools and your classrooms. 

There is no other conference like this one for STEM administrators and teachers.

NCSSS provides enriching, engaging content at these events. Everyone is highly motivated to share their story and listen to yours – you are sure to walk away having learned something and knowing that you were able to help others in considering how to improve or expand their programs.
