Your Wild Life goes to NSTA|Boston

This past weekend I attended the National Science Teachers Association conference in Boston, joining 11,500 other educators who were passionate and enthusiastic about SCIENCE! I learned a lot about what science teachers are looking for in regards to materials in support of the Next Generation Science Standards as well as the increasing demand for citizen science-based lesson plans so that students can be more involved in their community (and as a bonus, a network of scientists). It was all pretty whirlwind and exciting, to say the least!

Here’s a Storify of the conference, with more details to come about the one hour workshop that Kristin Bedell and I hosted about incorporating Your Wild Life citizen science-based lesson plans into the classroom. We had a lot of fun with it and can’t wait to tell you more about it in a future post!
