SMCAA Show-Me Curriculum Administrators Association (SMCAA) and Science Teachers of Missouri (STOM) have joined together to offer Missouri elementary and secondary teachers each a day filled with enriching opportunities that support the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) position that early experiences in science help students develop problem-solving skills that empower them to participate in an increasingly scientific and technological world.
