Kansas City here I come.......
Our team just came back from a successful NSTA Conference in Kansas City.
The conference was attended by close to 3,000 educators and was - as usual - well managed by the NSTA staff.
Our portable planetarium Starlab® was again the hit. More than 400 educators went to our Starry Night and The Layered presentations and you could hear the "ohs and ahs" outside the dome. Many teachers said that they were sent by a colleague and that they were told "you have to see this, this is the best of show booth".
Another attraction was a raffle for our Science First® Aquaponics Kit. Close to 100 educators participated. LaHeather Fisher from the Joplin High School in Joplin, MO, was the very happy winner. Congratulations!
This was the last National Science Teachers Association conference of the year and we are looking forward to the national conference in Nashville.
This will be another opportunity for us to "ignite science".
