MnCOSE22 Call for Presenters

Jul 1, 2022 - Oct 16, 2022

MnCOSE22 in 3D • Nov 3-5, 2022
Crosscutting Concepts • Disciplinary Core Ideas • Science & Engineering Practices
All Students, All Standards, All Voices - All Together!

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 NEW SPECIALLY DISCOUNTED conference presenter registration rate of $75 for the entire conference by sharing a personal discount code for you to use once we approve your presentation in our system.


We're excited to be BACK in person after a few years of virtual only events.

MnCOSE22 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 45 minutes and happen on Friday, Nov 4th.  Please aim for up to a 40-minute presentation and time for a few minutes of questions.

MnCOSE22 Strands will include traditional Core Idea focused strands:

  • Life & Environmental Sciences
  • Physical Sciences (Chemistry & Physics)
  • Earth & Space Science

          and also three strands around critical areas in science education:

  • Implementing the 2019 MN Science Standards
  • Justice, Equity, and Culture in Science Education
  • Community and Global Impacts on Science Teaching

We recognize your session might fit MULTIPLE strands - and we ask you to check EACH strand that you feel your session will fit into.  Then our strand leaders will juggle sessions for the best balance.  Similarly, please indicate the GRADE RANGES appropriate to your presentation.  This information will be displayed with the session description (in lieu of grade-based strands).

MnCOSE Strand Leaders will be present to introduce you and be sure you're set to present!  You'll present in person in a conference room setup classroom style at the DECC.

We will continue with the new tool called "Whova" that we have used in the past two conferences.  This tool will largely take the place of our traditional conference program.  It will provide a place where you as a presenter can share resources digitally with participants.

By submitting this proposal, you agree to abide by our MnCOSE22 Norms for the event and all MnCOSE22 Presenter Guidelines

Once your proposal is approved, we will provide you with access to Whova - where you can upload additional information about your session as well as resources to share.  You will be able to edit this information right up until the time of the conference.


Initial proposals are due to by submitted by Sept 25.  After acceptance, we'll direct you to our conference presentation system called Whova where you can upload materials.
  • If you're a member and logged in, use the 'Submit a Presentation Proposal Now' button below to enter your information.
  • If you're a member and not logged in, first login and then submit a proposal.
  • If you're not a MnSTA member, please join here!  Then upload your presentation proposal from this page.

Once a presentation is submitted, you'll be able to come back to this location and view and edit "Your Submissions" in the area below any time until we close the call for proposals.  Choosing to 'Submit Proposal' simply updates your information in our system to the latest version.


Our first round call for MnCOSE22 presentations closes on Sept 25, 2022.  We'll run a second round as well and will close the second round on Oct 16th!
We hope to have your ideas!

Please contact Eric after this date if you still have a proposal to submit.
