Make the Case to Attend

CAST is one of the nation’s premier science education conferences and a must-attend event for any science educator seeking to stay on top of the latest trends and cutting-edge resources. CAST19 will take place November 21-23 at the Hilton Anatole Dallas, and we recognize your principal or superintendent might have concerns about staff attending a conference the week before Thanksgiving. We’ve put together a few resources to help you make the case to attend.
