Program DescriptionAt no time in our country’s history has science education been more important than it is today. Whether it be addressing mankind’s grand challenges facing coming generations, or finding solutions to local issues tomorrow, science education leaders must navigate a shifting landscape all while owning the responsibility of implementing positive changes in their field. As science education leaders, we are tasked with understanding the current trends in science education; making decisions on current trends based on evidence; and implementing instructional practices to reflect changes in science education. 
The Leadership Strands for the 2018 Leadership Summit and additional professional development series are designed to equip science leaders with the tools and resources to tackle the grand challenges in leading effective science education in an ever-changing system.
