Metropolitan Detroit Science Teachers Association

Serving Southeast Michigan Science Teachers Since 1941

MDSTA Weather and Climate Workshop on November 2, 2019 

A Partnership of MDSTA, GLOBE, Mission Earth, AREN Project, and Lawrence Technological University

To make science education in the United States internationally competitive, multiple states collaborated to create the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) to provide benchmarks to elevate, enhance and enrich STEM education across all grades and disciplines.  MDSTA is developing a series of workshops that will address various NGSS strands for elementary, middle, and high school educators. 

The first workshop is designed for Middle School teachers focusing on Weather and Climate and features an exciting speaker and expert climatologist:

Dr. Jeffrey Andresen, State of Michigan Climatologist  

who will provide you with current information on weather and climate and how it directly affects our state and the Great Lakes region. 

You will participate in two breakout sessions, with a culminating closeout session.  No matter your level of teaching, these workshops will add to your teaching repertoire. 


MDSTA co-hosted a workshop with the STEM Center at Lawrence Technological University in August.   The topic was "STEM Impact - Women Untold."  View the resources from the workshop on our

 EVENTS page.

Do you have a teaching resource that you would like to share with the MDSTA community?  If so, MDSTA is providing a new website for members who want to share their teaching resources.  Check out the latest addition at our MEMBER SHARED RESOURCES page.

Due to a number of factors, including declining conference attendance in recent years plus the need to find a new venue, the DACTM and MDSTA Boards have each decided to cancel this year's conference.

We want you, our recent presenters and members, to be among the first to know. Both Boards have plans for smaller scale science and math events soon.  

Here is contact information for both groups:
