Going to the "EE" at the national conference on Friday March 13, 2015?

If I could only attend one session at the NSTA national conference in Chicago this week, it would be the Elementary Extravaganza! I had so much fun presenting last year but missed walking around to glean ideas and freebies from the other presenters. This year it will be held on Friday, March 13 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM, in the McCormick Place, Skyline W375c Room.

Here’s why this Extravaganza is not to be missed! Join preschool and elementary groups of professionals for an exceptional opportunity. The room is filled with presenters at their own tables sharing ideas and resources for use in your classroom immediately. Engaging hands-on activities such as Ramps and Pathways physical science and engineering, strategies to excite and encourage your students, a preview of the best trade books available, information about award opportunities, contacts with elementary science organizations and the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) for teachers of children ages 0-8 years old, sharing with colleagues, door prizes, and much more will be available to participants.

Walk away with a head full of ideas and arms filled with materials.

Organizations participating in the Elementary Extravaganza include:

  • Council for Elementary Science International
  • NSTA Preschool Elementary Committee
  • Science & Children authors and reviewers
  • Society of Elementary Presidential Awardees

Sponsored by Carolina Biological Supply; Educational Innovations, Inc.; FOSS and Delta Education; TCI; and University of Nebraska–Lincoln Center for Science, Mathematics & Computer Education.

    Reading Peggy’s post makes me feel more nostalgic than ever that I won’t be at NSTA this year, nor will I be participating in the Elementary Extravaganza. As a recent retiree, trying to balance the structure and lack of structure in my life has been an Interesting experience. One of the things that I definitely miss is the interest and excitement in science education that I have always shared with people at NSTA. Missing you all – maybe next year – who knows!?

    So it’s not just me–other educators love the Elementary Extravaganza! I know I will miss the excitement of science education when I retire. Penny, you will have to let us know what you do instead. Currently I do some free science teaching for Girl Scout troops of my former preschool students and an occasional activitiy at the public library. Maybe the number of those events will expand when I retire?
