52nd National Convention Was a Smash Hit--Check Out These
Thousands of science
educators spent much of last week at the NSTA National Convention
in Atlanta, Ga. From the new professional development institutes,
to short courses, inspirational speakers, and an Exhibition Hall
as long as a football field, the convention offered educators unlimited
opportunities to expand their professional horizons.
If you didn’t
make it to Atlanta--or if even if you did--take a look at some of
the events and activities that made the NSTA national convention
such a huge success, then download the thought-provoking powerpoint
presentation on science education presented by keynote speaker Dr.
Susan Sclafani from the U. S. Department of Education: http://science.nsta.org/nstaexpress/nstaexpress_2004_04_05_sclafani.htm
