As our world evolves and our local, regional, and global environments change, Earth Science education is more important now than it ever was. NJESTA is dedicated to serving the Earth Science K-16 and nonformal education community by providing access to timely resources and professional development. It is the goal of NJESTA to support the Earth Science education community in their efforts to offer a quality education to their students.

NJESTA offers professional development opportunities across the state at various venues. We are proud to announce that we have new sponsor, Sterling Hill Mining Museum, and we are looking forward to collaborating with SHMM to offer additional exemplary professional development opportunities.
