2021 ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE, April 7 - 10, 2021

SCIENCE EDUCATION, A PUBLIC GOOD FOR THE GOOD OF THE PUBLIC? RESEARCH TO EMPOWER, EVOKE, AND REVOLUTIONIZE

The conference theme is a fitting call for this era of drastic change (e.g., population shifts, prominence of technology, disappearing economies) and daunting challenges (e.g., increased frequency of life-impacting natural and human-inspired disasters). It is a charge to conduct science education research for a socially just world.
