OUTREACH:NOAA Education Completes Conference Participation for 2014

Published Dec 2014


National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) regional conference in Long Beach, CA.

NOAA Education completed it’s education outreach event participation in early December by ending the year with the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) regional conference in Long Beach, CA. Nearly 6,000 people attended this science education event, the largest regional conference NSTA has ever held.

The NOAA Education Office received staff assistance from several regional NOAA programs including the National Weather Service Offices in Oxnard and San Diego, CA; the NOAA Fisheries Southwest Science Center, La Jolla, CA; the University of Southern California Sea Grant; and NOAA Teacher at Sea program.

The most important aspect of our exhibit presence is the NOAA staff making personal connections with the attendees- whether discussing: NOAA sciences, teacher professional development opportunities, pathways to STEM careers, hands-on science activities, weather preparedness, staff presentations at schools, or any of the other multitude of questions and issues that come up.

Look for our participation at science education conferences coming up in 2015!
