The MidAtlantic Regional SENCER Center for Innovation (SCI-MA) hosts biannual conferences in area institutions where seasoned SENCER practitioners and newly interested faculty come together to hear nationally renowned teacher-scholars and to share their own ideas and experiences in teaching STEM discipline courses through timely civic questions. SCI-MA programs are open to participants from around the country, but are targeted to participants from New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland. The Directors, together with Leadership Council members, travel throughout the area visiting campuses to speak about SENCER issues. Topics presented and discussed include the reform of undergraduate STEM education, assessment of teaching and learning, opportunities for community college articulation, efforts to coordinate a Consortium for Assessment of Student Achievement, and informal science education arenas, as well as pre-kindergarten through 12th grade STEM education with programs for pre-service teachers.

NARRATIVE in SCIENCE
As scientists, science educators, and science communicators, we employ narrative in a variety of ways to shape the stories we tell about our work. Narrative can be a powerful way to connect the public to the work that we do. This virtual SENCER conference will focus on the many ways we can use narrative to teach science and engage the public. Please join us to share your ideas, learn form each other and network!
We are currently accepting abstract submissions for Interactive Workshops, Discussions/Panels, and Posters focusing on “Narrative in Science.” The virtual conference will be held January 16, 2021. We anticipate a schedule that runs from about 11 am thru 4 pm EST. Submissions for presentations and registrations will be requested through a communication directly from NSCSE/SENCER once the conference date is finalized.
