Mrs D just returned from the National Science Teachers
Association national conference in Indianapolis.Thanks very much to Dale County Schools for
sponsoring this opportunity!
Science teachers are students too and this conference was a
great opportunity to work with scientists and educators from across the country
to learn more about science, learn new teaching methods and tools.
Some highlights of this trip:
Visit to the National Weather Service in Indianapolis
Met Bill Nye the Science Guy and learned about his newest
venture – The Planetary Society
Developed programs for Lego robots with other teachers and
Scientists from the Air Force Museum in Ohio taught short
course on mechanics of flight
Learned cool new methods for creating Science notebooks
Talked with Scientist from Florida State in Tallahassee
where they have some of the world’s strongest magnets.(Hoping he will be able to visit GW Long
Looking forward to sharing new ideas and materials with our
5th and 6th grade students!
