Every year, STAN organises a conference for all members and other science, technology, engineering and mathematics teachers. The annual conference serves as a forum for all to disseminate information. Each conference has a theme for which members come to present papers and hold group discussions. It is during the annual conference that science quiz and projects competitions, exhibition of science materials, textbooks, etc. take place. In recent years, STAN science quiz competition has been broadcast on the network service of Radio Nigeria for 13 weeks. Election of officers is also held during the conference period. Papers presented during the conference are published as conference proceedings. The annual conference of STAN, indeed, presents the peak of its activities. (more...)

Many conferences have been held to date in various parts of the country. (more...)
Teachers' Exhibition: Science teachers are given opportunities at every annual conference to exhibit results of their projects in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics at no cost.
Over the years, the response has been very encouraging.
Commercial Exhibition: Organizations and corporate bodies are given opportunities at the conference to exhibit and promote products of which they have financial interest. An exhibition fee is being charged for such presentations.
For information, contact the Senior Administrative Officer on: (0) 708 274 3110.
Paper presentation offers an opportunity to share an innovative teaching idea or results of research, or to discuss a topic of specific interest. To present a session at STAN's Annual
Conference, full papers must be submitted within a time limit. (more...)
Workshops are 60-minute presentations that actively engage a limited number of participants
in a hands-on activity. Workshops are set classroom style (with a limited number of tables as
well as chairs). In addition to the conference sub-themes, delegates may also run workshops
on the following subjects: Agricultural Science, Basic Science, Basic Science and Technology, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Studies, Home Economics, Mathematics, Physical and Health Education, Physics, and Technology Education.
Beginning August 2013, modular workshops on these panels are being held. These target the approved curricula.
Special presentations are more in-depth than regular sessions and generally last longer. The presenters are usually commissioned.
