Welcome to Southeastern Association for Science Teacher Education

We represent a regional member subset of the Association for Science Teacher Education (ASTE).  Our Southeastern region officially includes Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina.  However, we welcome any science teacher educator outside of those specified areas.

Mission of Southeastern Region

To foster leadership in and support for those involved in the professional development of teachers of science primarily for those working in or concerned with states in the Southeast.  In fulfillment of this mission, we meet each fall for a 2-day conference to support the work of graduate students, provide a space for potential collaborations, and share ongoing scholarship/research endeavors with colleagues across the region.
