We welcome participants from all around the state to our second virtual MnSTA Conference on Science Education.  This fall we encourage small, local gatherings of educators to participate in the rich networking of MnCOSE in smaller groups without the travel and lodging expense of a full in-person conference!

Consider sharing all that you have learned in this past year as we gather together to grow.


We have developed a new set of conference strands to capture this unique moment in our science education experience.  Each strand will be facilitated by pairs of dedicated strand leaders.  Each session will be hosted live by our strand leaders as they welcome and support each presenter through their session.

Our 2021 MnCOSE strands include some traditional content-focused strands as well as some focusing on the teaching and learning pedagogy within science content and across grade bands.  In addition to their placement in relevant strands, each MnCOSE21 session will also be tagged with the relevant science content and most appropriate grade range.

MnCOSE21 Strands are

  • Life Sciences
  • Physical Sciences (Chemistry & Physics)
  • Earth & Space Sciences
  • Leveraging Technology: Lessons Learned from Distance Learning
  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Equity, Culturally Responsive Teaching, Social-Emotional Learning in the Science Classroom
  • Science Communities: Learning, Growing, and Connecting with Others
  • Exhibitor Sessions: Presentations by Exhibitors on Products and Services

We are intentionally embedding grade level identification of sessions across all strands, so that educators of pre-K, elementary, middle, high, and 12+ students can identify sessions most helpful to them across the conference.

MnSTA membership is required to register for MnCOSE21.
