Want to show students how glaciers grow and shrink without traveling to Antarctica? How about studying immune cells, but without the aid of an expensive electron microscope?
Learn more about how online simulations and virtual experiments are allowing students to re-create lab activities that might be too time-consuming or expensive to do in the classroom in this article in the latest issue of Education Week.
Fred Beyer was well known among long-time science educators for his film series “What on Earth” that was produced during his time with the Department of Instruction in the 70’s. The series explained geology concepts to thousands of students and teachers across North Carolina and beyond as the series focused on the geologic history of North Carolina. Many years later, Fred wrote a book that continues to explain our geologic history to students and science educators.
NCSLA is looking for your input! To make sure we are best serving the needs of our members we have created a membership survey.

The NCSLA Spring Membership Meeting was held in Raleigh on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at the James Hunt Library in Raleigh.
The meeting brought science and STEM educators leaders from across the state to network, celebrate, support, lead, and advocate for science/STEM leadership at the school, district, regional, and state levels. This meeting in particular looked at the state of science/STEM leadership in North Carolina, established a baseline to know what people and organizations are doing to provide leadership opportunities to stakeholders in science/STEM education, and shared ideas and strategies to strengthen science/STEM leadership across the state.
