News and Information from Mr. Yerington’s Classroom

Day Two of the NSTC

Posted by iateacher on March 30, 2007

Here’s the lowdown on what I’ve been up to today. I began the day by going to the America’s Center for a keynote speaker that I think you may have heard of. Some guy by the name of BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY!!! Yep, you read that right — Bill Nye was here in person! He is SO funny — he kept us in stitches the entire two hours. I even got my picture taken with him after his talk. Just as soon as I figure out why my pictures aren’t posting and get it fixed I will get that up!

Bill Nye!!It’s BILL NYE!!!

Bill Nye and Mr. YLook, it’s Bill Nye and Mr. Y! Hey, that has a nice ring to it!!

My next stop was a short session on teaching plate tectonics. Got a nice piece of evaluation software that will work for 45 days. From there I went to the middle level luncheon and enjoyed a great meal — won a book in the door prize giveaway.

After lunch I went to the a social hour for new members of the NSTA that went by really fast. From there I took in a class on Black Holes that was pretty good.

Almost forgot — on my way to one of my sessions I ran into Curious George so, since my nephew loves him, I had my picture taken with him too!

Now I’m sitting in the lobby of my hotel waiting for the rest of the group so I can figure out where supper will be tonight!

More tomorrow!!!!
