Welcome to NMLSTA

NMLSTA is THE place for middle school science educators to connect!   

NMLSTA is the ONLY science teacher association devoted to meeting the unique needs of middle school science educators.

We are a group of science educators who are excited about the connections we have made with fellow science educators across the nation!  As a team, we all can work together to stimulate, improve, and coordinate science teaching in the middle level grades, to promote the continuity of science education by developing and improving programs that begin in preschool or first grade and develop in a continuous fashion through grade twelve and beyond, to recruit and retain qualified individuals to teach science at the middle level, to develop and improve education and curriculum programs for science teachers preparing to teach at the middle level, and to improve the public identity and status of the middle level science educator.

We do all of this, all while having fun at the same time, with events at the various NSTA regional conferences, culminating with our hugely popular Meet Me In The Middle Day at the annual NSTA conference! 

We welcome you to join us by clicking on the 'Join us' link above.
