Coffee Talks are one-hour informal virtual gatherings for professional discussion of science teachings open to LSTA members.  Coffee Talks are available to current members only .


  • Short (~15 minute) introduction about a topic
  • Moderated conversations sharing questions, resources, and strategies about effective science teaching

Learning from other teachers, talking together about standards, and student work, and sharing ideas is the most powerful way for teachers to grow. Coffee Talks provide these opportunities, and allow teachers to make connections with colleagues that can extend beyond the hour long sessions, and develop a community of great practitioners.

Free to members!

  • Developing 3 Dimensional Assessments Using AI

    Join us for a coffee talk about using AI in the science classroom. Anyone who has attempted to create a LEAP-like science assessment knows that it takes a ton of time and effort. But what if we got AI to do the heavy lifting for us? In this coffee talk we'll look at AI options, assessment structures, then combine the two to create stimulus items and questions.

    Who: Loren Klein, 8th Grade Science and Engineering Teacher
    When: Saturday, February 17, 2024 from 9:00 am - 10:00 am
