Society for Science & the Public has selected 200 science research teachers to attend the 2017 Research Teachers Conference in Washington, D.C., from October 13 to 15, 2017. The conference, sponsored by Regeneron, will bring together teachers representing 45 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.

The teachers were selected via lottery and will receive an all-expense-paid weekend. Conference attendees will share best practices, troubleshoot challenges that may arise in supporting students in independent science research and learn more about the Society and the Regeneron Science Talent Search.
