A New Vision for Science Education in Minnesota: All Students, All Standards, All Voices
MnSTA's premier professional development event, MnCOSE, can only occur because of the talented professionals that choose to present their work at our conferences. Please consider sharing your specialty with your colleagues. In exchange for your presentation, we'll provide a half-price registration rate of $25 for the entire conference by sharing a personal discount code for you to use once we approve your presentation in our system.
MnCOSE20 will be our first VIRTUAL conference! All sessions will be presented virtually via Zoom within our conference web platform. MnCOSE presenters must be MnSTA members at the time you register for the conference--and we welcome you to join MnSTA if you haven't already!
Each presentation session will be 50 minutes in our 4 evenings of sessions - please aim for up to a 40-minute presentation and time for 10 minutes of questions. We're running 8 simultaneous strands of sessions each evening.
Our conference strands include presentations focusing on:
- Distance Learning
- 3 Dimensional Science Teaching and Learning
- Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Science Education
- Elementary Science Education
- Life Science Education
- Chemistry Education
- Physics Education
- Earth Science Education
MnCOSE Strand Leaders will be present to introduce you and to moderate the entire session! You'll present in a Zoom platform, though it will be embedded in our conference platform, Whova, for all participants to engage with you. The strand leader will also facilitate the Q & A session with participants and support your tech needs.
We ask that you share your screen for presentation materials as well as make these available to participants as possible.
Each session will be recorded as it is presented. These recordings will remain available to MnCOSE registrants throughout the entire 2020-21 academic year!
If your proposal is approved, we will provide you with access to our online conference system called Whova - where you can upload additional information about your session.

We hope to have your ideas!
