Sign Up For The Share-a-Thon!


Sign up for the Share-a-Thon!

One of our goals in AMSE is to connect our members with opportunities to share their expertise. We are really excited that this year, all AMSE sponsored sessions in St. Louis will be presented by AMSE members! If you didn’t submit a proposal for a presentation, there’s still another chance to share your amazing work. Please see the message below from Dr. Carrie Jones, NSTA’s High School Division Director.

“Set your sights higher at the High School Share-a-Thon!

Share your best lesson(s) with other educators by volunteering to informally present at our annual Share-a-Thon in St. Louis!

You will have space at a table and educators will circulate the room to engage in hands-on activities, collect information and resources, and network with other educators.

Saturday April 13th from 9:30-11:00AM in Grand Ballroom D/E, Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch

Please go to: to let us know what you would like to share!

If you have questions please contact Dr. Carrie Jones at

If accepted, all presenters are required to be registered for the NSTA conference in order to present and all accepted presenters must complete the NSTA Safety Form, which will be provided to you if your proposal is accepted. You will be notified about your acceptance in February. We cannot accept vendors/exhibitors at this time for presenting, but feel free to contact us if you would like to provide a door prize.”
