The ATA Science Council is an organization operated by science teachers for science teachers, to promote, support and enhance the teaching of science in Alberta, Canada. From organizing conferences to looking after professional concerns, we have always worked hard to keep teachers and students as the most important aspects of our mandate.

The ATA Science Council offers an annual world class conference, often as a joint venture with other local, national, and international groups. Special thanks go to our corporate sponsors, who help make our annual conferences possible. Liaisons and partnerships that result in an international exchange of information on curriculum trends have been developed with outside agencies and convention associations.
