Welcome to the 2014 USTA Conference!!!

Utah Valley Convention Center - Provo, UT

We have worked hard to make sure that there is something for every science teacher at every hour of the conference.  Please make sure that after a breakout session you take the time to fill out a survey.  Every survey you fill out is an entry into our raffle for some great prizes to use in the classroom and on your free time.

The 'Bests of' Chemistry
We plan to show activities and experiments that go along with chemistry, focusing mainly on the periodic table, chemical / physical properties, and chemical/physical changes. We have hands-on activities to start the unit. We also would like to share apps that we have found that students can use in the classroom.
