"The SLI experience offers an intimacy with peers and professionals with various backgrounds that is tremendous! I was able to network with people who can help me because they have experiences in areas I need to grow. The NSELA team is amazingly supportive -- and FUN!"
Amy H. Berkshire Schools, OH

"I have never been around a group of science professionals so dedicated to the advancement of science education. This is an invaluable experience for science teachers and leaders."
Kyle Thompson, Lincoln East High School

"Loved getting ideas for how to make STEM happen in my classroom and my district from the experts! Inspiring and motivating to know I can be an agent for science change that is good for kids! As a classroom teacher I was worried that I would not be able to contribute to the high level conversations and I was so wrong! A teacher in the trenches was part of the perspective needed to make STEM grow and be a force for science across the nation. I got STEMMED."
Mark Danley, Lincoln, NE

"The Summer Leadership Institute has assisted in preparing me to lead my educators into our new state science standards built on NGSS."
Katrina Reno, MS

"One of the ways NSELA is different from other conferences I've attended over the years is the small nature of the conference. This allows each participant to get engaged and to network on a deeper level. The size of the conference was appreciated."
