CONASTA 63 is expected to bring together over 400 science educators and curriculum leaders from across Australia. We welcome support and participation from organisations, government departments, businesses and communities involved in science and education, and welcome discussions about ways we can involve you in our conference as a sponsor or supporter.

Each CONASTA conference includes a Trade Display area where science and educational institutes, resource providers and industry practitioners demonstrate some of their latest programs, innovations products and services. Science educators are keen to keep abreast of the latest teaching resources, and we encourage displayers to think of new and innovative ways to engage with conference delegates.
