As a busy classroom teacher—or supervisor—what products and services would better help you do your job? Let us know by filling out the short survey at http://www.nsta.org/survey_products_services/survey_products_services.asp.

Live From Reno, Nevada--Workshops Delivered Right to Your Computer

NSTA is offering educators an opportunity to participate in several virtual exhibitor workshops--broadcast live from our conventions via the Web--on a personal computer (or on-screen projection) at your offsite location.  You'll be able to view demonstrations and graphics, ask questions and get responses in real time, and more. The Kansas City virtual workshops in November played to a packed house nationwide, and the response was highly favorable.  You’ll want to see this very latest in electronic communications, so sign up now for the workshops that will be presented live from Reno.

These special virtual exhibitor workshops are open to only the first 50 individual (or group) site registrants each, so click on http://www.nsta.org/virtualworkshops for more details and to sign up. If you'd like to attend Reno conventions in person, go to http://www.nsta.org/conventions for agendas and registration.


Support Your Urban Colleagues Through City Science --Make a Tax-Deductible Donation Today

NSTA is seeking support from NSTA members and friends—people like you—to make a difference in our nation's urban science classrooms. As 2003 comes to an end, we ask you to make a tax-free donation to City Science: A Campaign to Engage Urban Teachers. This NSTA initiative will provide a host of services and opportunities for urban teachers of science, including high-quality professional development for sustained learning, a network that enables teachers to connect with and support one another, and funds to secure needed equipment to help teachers implement effective science lessons. With your financial help now, we will launch City Science in conjunction with the NSTA National Convention in April 2004.
