June 17 - 20, 2020 | Renaissance Montgomery Hotel | Montgomery, Alabama

We invite all Noyce PI's, Noyce Scholars, Noyce Teachers, and Noyce Personnel to submit a presentation proposal for the 2020 regional conference and register a project or research poster for the conference poster session.

This year's conference will center around five learning strands, including:

  1. Teaching STEM to Diverse Students (Low Income, Rural, Urban, Hispanic, etc.)
  2. Noyce Program Administration (Recruitment, Retention, Mentoring, Tracking, etc.)
  3. Mathematics in Secondary Education (standards, content, etc.)
  4. Science in Secondary Education (standards, content, etc.)
  5. Social Justice and Culturally Relevant Pedagogy in Math and Science education.

Project & Research Posters

All Noyce projects are required to bring a project poster to the conference.  Noyce Scholars & Teachers are welcome to present posters related to their Noyce research projects as well.  To ensure we have adequate space to display all posters, please register your poster by May 1st, 2020.


Poster Guidelines

  • Use the online form to register your poster by May 1st, 2020.  
  • A confirmation email with additional information will be sent by May 29th.
  • Posters should be approximately 36" x 48" in size.
  • Boards and fixtures will be provided so that posters may be displayed. 


Conference Presentations

Presentations are a great way to share high quality resources, report research findings, and build a strong professional network.  We are currently seeking 55 minute presentation proposals that center around the four learning strands of the conference.  

Do you have a professional development session that is sure to appeal to our regional Noyce community?  This year we will have PD sessions geared toward impacting our preservice and early career Noyce educators.  These sessions go beyond the shorter break-out sessions in that they engage participants interactively, inviting them to tie what they learn at the conference to their own classroom practices.

  • Use the online form to register your presentation by May 1st, 2020.  
  • All proposals will be under blind review by the conference host committee.
