Association of Future Science Educators Continues Strong

afse logo

In 2003, the Science Education Department started a group called the Association of Future Science Educators (AFSE). The group is both a National Science Teachers Association and California Science Teachers Association Student Chapter. Students who participate in 3 or more events per year are eligible for a discount on their CSTA membership.

AFSE hosts events each month to help future and practicing teachers learn new science, try out new lessons and make connections with the science education community. Last year, more than 250 students attended our different events.
