Poster Sessions

Each poster will be assigned a display space of 40" H x 60" W (roughly 1 m x 1.5 m). Posters will be grouped by discipline and subject matter. Each presenter will be given at least four hours for poster display, although more time may be available. Presenters should set up their posters no later than 15 minutes before the beginning of their presentation session and are expected to be available to discuss their work for at least one hour while their poster is on display. Posters should be removed within 15 minutes of the close of the session. Student posters will be judged for Awards of Excellence. Therefore, students must be available for questions until all of the judges have seen their posters.

Please check our current Newsletter for the most up to date information on posters.

Teachers, K - 14

The AAAS Pacific Division strives to offer symposia and workshops specifically organized to meet teachers' classroom needs and to introduce them to new and exciting materials and techniques. Teachers K–12 and Community College who plan to attend the meetings may pre-register at a reduced rate.

The Division’s Science and Technology Education Section seeks teachers' participation in its sessions to share their knowledge and innovative methodologies with colleagues. To this end, contributed paper and poster sessions are being planned. Teachers attending the annual meeting can receive, upon request, a certificate of attendance from the Pacific Division.
