CREATE at the MSTA 70th Annual conference, March 3-4, 2023

It's time for the 70th Annual Michigan Science Teacher's Association conference! The event will be held at the Lansing Center and Radisson Hotel in downtown Lansing on Friday, March 3 and Saturday, March 4, 2023. The conference will be in-person this year. 

CREATE will have six presentations at the conference that you won't want to miss:

Friday, March 3, 2023 9:30 - 10:30AM, in the Governors Room: How successful science teachers teach (and am I doing it?), Dr. Christie Morrison Thomas

2/15/23 presentation postponed; Christie Morrison Thomas, 2/22/23

We are deeply saddened by the events on campus on Monday, February 13, and are grieving for our community's loss of life and the senseless tragedy that took place on our beloved campus. 

Dr. Peng He and Mao-Jen Tseng's presentation scheduled for Weds, 2/15, has been postponed until further notice. 

Dr. Christie Morrison Thomas is scheduled to present her work on Weds, 2/22; at this juncture, we are planning to proceed with that event. We will update this page if anything changes. See the attached announcement for more details about her talk. 

In solidarity,
