Join us for Fall Science Update on Wednesday, November 15, 2017!

For 33 years, the RMSC has held the Fall Science Update conference for educators.  This full day conference will be on the GVSU Allendale campus and offer 25 elementary and secondary breakout sessions on topics including technology, science content, standards, pedagogy, and informal science.
Explore how to engage students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) learning!

This year's theme is "Incorporating STEM by Design."

Now that Michigan has new Science Standards, we are looking at how we can prepare our students to be "STEM literate" and have the ability to apply STEM concepts to understand real world problems and generate innovative solutions. 

Join our keynote speakers, Ebiri Nkugba and Rick Mushing, Kent ISD STEM Consultants, on how to teach the Michigan Science Standards using STEM principles in collaboration with area business partners to prepare our students for their future.
