    NEW YORK, NY, March 29, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- IT'S ABOUT TIME, the pioneering STEM education publisher, has unveiled the lineup for its "Future of Education" workshops at this year's National Science Teachers Association Conference (#NSTA14) in Boston.

The 12 essential teacher workshops will address the challenges, rewards and "how-to" of inspiring the next generation of scientists. From Bringing Technology Into Your STEM Classroom to Engineering in the Next Generation Science Standards - and everything in between - expert presenters will share thought-provoking, practical instruction on incorporating STEM into curricula and engaging students in new and exciting ways.

Says Co-Founder and Co-President Laurie Kreindler: "IT'S ABOUT TIME is leading the way to 'The Future of Education' with a can't-miss slate of 12 teacher workshops on the latest developments in STEM and our groundbreaking, highly effective curricula."

Workshop sessions run April 3-4 at the Boston Convention Center, and feature presentations from STEM thought leaders and luminaries such as Arthur Eisenkraft, Professor of Science Education at the University of Massachusetts and one of "IT'S ABOUT TIME's Top 10 Game-Changing Edupreneurs to Watch in 2014."

In addition, IT'S ABOUT TIME will host a pre-conference tweetchat on Tuesday, April 1, at 8 p.m. to discuss all things NSTA: where to go, what to see and who to meet. Join the lively one-hour tweet-versation with insiders, newbies and education bloggers, using the hashtags #NSTA14, #STEM, #ScienceTeachersRock and #BYOBB (bring your own Bunsen burner).

And on Friday, April 4, IT'S ABOUT TIME will join Scholastic and the National Center for Technology Literacy to co-sponsor the gala celebration for NSTA attendees at Boston's Museum of Science from 6-10 p.m.
