  • Build confidence and skills for presenting at the NSTA’s annual conference
  • Participate in outreach efforts to foster interest and knowledge about science in the local community

NSTA plans several special events and field trips throughout the academic year. A bulletin board outside Holt 101 displays a calendar of events.
