I just really had to sit and digest it all before I wrote another blog. My colleagues and I had the most wonderful time at the AAAS conference from Feb 14- Feb 17th at the Hynes Convention Center and the Sheraton in Boston.
I want to thank Suzanne Thurston, AAAS, Verizon and Subaru for the amazing opportunity. The enrichment the AAAS conference offered us all, and the many new friends and connections we made, and the knowledge and relevance we will bring back to our classroom from all we encountered Is exceptional.
The sessions were relevant and well done, there was something for everyone. There was so much to see and do I just wanted to be part of it all. The exhibits and poster sessions were also great. It was so special to see all the young minds involved in so many good things. And the fair for the kids that took place in the middle of all else going on was fantastic.
All children really love learning given the opportunity. There are few things better in life than the special look of amazement and inquiry in a child's eyes when they are immersed in science and technology, as you will be able to view in the images I was able to capture in the photos attached.
I will follow up with future blogs with various experiences from the AAAS conference
