NESTA will be offering workshops at all three NSTA Area Conferences this fall. In addition to their traditional Share-a-Thon and Rock and Mineral Raffle, they will also be offering workshops on Earth Systems science, climate change, and geology leveraging the new program, Windows to the Universe (http://www.windows2universe.org/). This popular educational resource contains over 9,000 pages of content spanning Earth and space science at elementary – high school levels, as well as over a hundred tested classroom activities ready for immediate use.
All of the events provide a full day of Earth science professional development, and are free with registration at the NSTA conference. Workshops will be held at the following :
- October 28; Connecticut Convention Center, Hartford, Conn.
- November 11; Ernest M. Morial Convention Center, New Orleans, La.
- December 9; Washington State Convention Center, Seattle, Wa.
