Louisiana Science Standards Review Committee
Louisiana must build science standards strong in content that prepare students for their future, whether that be post-secondary education in a STEM field, a position in the industrial workforce, or as citizens who influence agricultural, petroleum, and environmental decisions. Louisiana is currently in the process of developing new science standards.
Check out January's #1 Eblast from LSTA and January's #2 Eblast from LSTA! Educators who wish to receive the E-Blast directly should contact Jean May-Brett firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Louisiana Region I Science and Engineering Fair announced the dates for the 2017 competition. More information can be found on the Caddo Science Resource Page. Make sure you scroll down to Science and Engineering Fair.
