This is my sixth conference with NSTA — my first, in 2008, was in Boston as well. When I tried to walk through the NSTA Science Store this morning, it was packed virtually shoulder to shoulder (the lines are considerably shorter now if you want to get some NSTA gear or pick up a few NSTA Press books). The crowd who came to hear keynote speaker Mayim Bialik was more than the room could hold, so a number of people were redirected to another room so they could still attend.
As you can see from this photo, there were a lot of science educators eager to enter the exhibit hall this morning, too.
If you couldn’t make it to Boston this year, check out http://www.nsta.org/conferences/nstatv.aspx where daily videos from the conference are being shared. A lot of attendees are sharing their experiences on Twitter using #NSTA14.It’s been a busy day already, and it’s still early afternoon!
What’s your favorite part of an NSTA conference?
