CAST 2017 General Information
Each year thousands of science teachers across the state of Texas come together to learn and advance science teaching at the Science Teachers Association of Texas' (STAT) premiere event: the Conference for the Advancement of Science Teaching (CAST). Just as the sun's gravity keeps the Earth in perfect orbit, our conference keeps the future of science teaching revolving around the success of our students.

Well then, Houston, We Have a Solution!  STAT's 60th Anniversary will take place at CAST 2017 in Houston, Texas November 9-11, 2017.  Join us as we celebrate 60 Years of Education and Exploration of science teaching and beyond.
