Registration is now open for the 2022 NARST International Conference

REGISTER NOW


Registration is now open for the NARST 2022 International Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, March 27-30! We are excited to be gathering together -- in person and virtually -- to share the latest research and insights in science education. The program includes workshops, general sessions, posters, concurrent breakout sessions, and exciting social and networking opportunities. Are you attending virtually? There will be three rooms set up for virtual presentations and live-streaming of in-person/hybrid sessions. That means there will always be offerings for your virtual participation. What else is new this year? The full conference program will be accessible to all registrants. Presentations (in person and virtual) will be recorded and made accessible after the conference. By registering, you will be able to view all the presentations, not just those you attend in real time!  

Register by January 24 and save! As this will be a hybrid conference, we are offering two registration rates:
