NATIONAL SCIENCE TEACHERS ASSOCIATION (NSTA) STUDENT CHAPTER

The purpose of the Belmont Chapter of the National Science Teachers Association is twofold.  The first goal is to promote scholarship in the sciences by creating resources for teachers to use in the classroom. We also plan on hosting demonstrations of science activities and providing tutoring for students both at Belmont and in the broader Nashville community. In doing so, we hope to share the joy of science with others. Secondly, we aspire to link all the science clubs and organizations at Belmont together through our diverse membership.

Find NSTA on Facebook!
