ACSME 2020 theme:
A science education for uncertain times

Now it is more important than ever to develop science graduates who can contribute meaningfully to solving the problems of a complex world facing numerous challenges. The current health crisis that came upon us so suddenly exemplifies the need to be able to pivot and adapt quickly to new circumstances. How are we preparing our science students for the uncertainties they will no doubt encounter in their working lives? How are we as educators changing our teaching practices to achieve this?
