One word I have never heard used to describe an NSTA conference is “boring.” There were swarms of science teachers everywhere! I am always amazed by the sheer number of educators at every career level, from first year teachers to veteran educators, eager to share and learn together. And plenty of science and education humor was on display, from a slide featuring Einstein and fish during Neil Shubin’s Your Inner Fish presentation to a teacher displaying her science humor on her back.
There were plenty notable moments today—Education Secretary Arne Duncan participated in a panel discussion with three educators, the always popular Bill Nye, and of course, the opening of the exhibit hall!
