OUTREACH:NOAA at Science Teacher Conference

Published April 2012

NOAA exhibit at NSTA 2012

The NOAA Office of Education was the sponsor of an exhibit booth at the annual National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) annual conference held on March 29- April 1, 2012 at the Indianapolis Convention Center, Indianapolis, IN.

Nearly 10,000 science educators from around the country attended this 60th annual conference. NOAA was acknowledged for participating for over 20 years in the exhibit hall.

The NOAA exhibit booth was staffed by a well rounded representation of all the NOAA programs including staff from the Illinois/Indiana Sea Grant programs, and both the education programs and the National Invasive Species staff. Rounding out exhibit staff were science teachers: NOAA Teacher at Sea Alumni (TASA), NOAA Climate Stewards as well as an Einstein Fellow assigned to NOAA. Excellent education resources from the various programs were distributed to the attendees. There was also a 'hands-on-science' area within the booth which enabled the NOAA staff to demonstrate short science activities which could be used in the classroom or in after-school activities.
