SASTE 2023 will take place at Florida International University from Oct 6 – 8. The theme is “Science Education: Learning at the Crossroads of Science, Society, and Students.”
Timeline and Format
SASTE 2023 will follow a similar timeline to past meetings, with social events occurring on Friday (Oct 6), formal conference events occurring on Saturday (Oct 7), and working group meetings occurring on Sunday (Oct 8). We’ll also continue to conduct this meeting as a hybrid event, with in-person and virtual attendees participating in the same activities to the extent possible.
