NSTA 52nd National Convention Was a Smash Hit--Check Out These Highlights

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://www.nsta.org/nstaexpress/nstaexpress_2004_04_05_sclafani.htm
