It's time for inspiration, connection, and discovery, and STAT is thoughtfully moving forward with plans to offer an in-person experience this November. Additionally, a Virtual CAST is scheduled for February 2022 and will feature selected content from the in-person event. CAST registration will include access to the virtual event, and a separate registration option for just the virtual event will later be available.
Providing a safe environment for all CAST attendees remains STAT's top priority as we continue to navigate the ongoing pandemic. Visit the COVID Safety page to review the CAST21 COVID-19 safety policies, including STAT's proof of vaccination or negative covid test policy.
The STAT community has come together in the past under unique circumstances to host CAST. While this may be a different set of circumstances, we appreciate your support and understanding as we do what is necessary to continue to inspire discovery of the world through science.

Whether in-person or online, educators and science advocates gather annually for the Conference for the Advancement of Science Teaching, aka CAST, one of the nation's premier science education conferences. Presented by the Science Teachers Association of Texas, the in-person 3-day professional learning event features hundreds of sessions, a massive exhibit hall, and connections all showcasing innovative classroom strategies and resources. CAST attendees may represent each of science's varied disciplines, but they are united by their passion for inspiring students to discover the world through science. Watch the CAST 2019 recap video to see the last in-person CAST in action.
