The NSTA Express editorial team wants to share the experiences of the 55th National Conference on Science Education through this round-up issue. Thousands of science educators and other stakeholders in science education gathered in St. Louis from March 28-April 1 to share ideas with colleagues, take advantage of the many professional development opportunities, and learn about the latest products and services available to assist them in their teaching. The following NSTA WebNews Digest stories provide glimpses into the National Conference.
What is like for a science teacher to attend their first NSTA conference? NSTA’s WebNews Editor Kristin Collins decided to find out by “shadowing” a first-time attendee on the first day of the association’s National Conference on Science Education in St. Louis. NSTA member Kyla Dominick agreed to this effort. To read the WebNews Digest story, visit http://www.nsta.org/main/news/stories/nsta_story.php?news_story_ID=53680.
This year, the Exhibition Hall offered 400 exhibits—one of the largest number NSTA has ever had, said President Linda Froschauer. A fourth-grade teacher from New Jersey said she comes to the Hall specifically to learn what materials other schools and teachers from other grade levels are using. "I am amazed at the size of this place," said Rebecca Teed of Dayton, Ohio. "There's so much stuff we didn't have before."
