We are excited to announce that we will hold a NIH SciEd virtual mini-conference on November 9 – 12, 2020, with 1-2 hours of conference sessions per day. The conference schedule is below.

The Conference will focus on sharing experiences and challenges in carrying out STEM education and programming during this pandemic.
