I, along with four of our other Science Coaches were privileged enough to be able to attend NSTA this year in Philadelphia. I was also able to present with Steven and his wife Amy. I met Steven through a partnership our school district had with Purdue University for the past three years. He is one of the Outreach coordinators and I attended the academy for three summers. Our grant has just run out, but I am thrilled that I was able to be one of the lucky ones in attendance for all three years!
As coaches, we attended NSTA this year to learn more about what our positions could entail in the future. I attended one session where I heard some great ideas for video taping lessons where we would be teaching critical Science Process Skills and then learned how to share them with a small cohort of science leaders.
Here are some pictures of our 4 1/2 days there, some touristy and some from the conference…enjoy!! 🙂
