Event Description

Please join the New Jersey Science Convention organization for one or both days at the New Jersey Science Convention. Plan also to attend the convention banquet on Tuesday night, Oct. 18. The banquet speaker is Dr. John Wilkin from the Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences at Rutgers University. He will discuss the future of coastal ocean environmental forecasting.

Dr. Wilkin is a member of NASA’s Ocean Surface Topography Science Team (OSTST) and is active in promoting the use of radar altimetry in the coastal ocean. He represents OSTST on the Global Ocean Data Assimilation Experiment Science Team. Wilkin also co-chairs the User Working Group for NASA’s Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center.

The convention provides science teachers in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania with professional development over the course of two days. A variety of sessions address K-12 three dimensional/Next Generation Science Standards lessons in all areas of science. Methods will be presented demonstrating how to create culturally responsive science classrooms that promote equity and inclusion and that engage students in climate change issues through research, discourse, and problem solving. The explanation and exploration of local problems will also be presented.
