For Elementary-Level Science Teachers: Arbordale Publishing has a STEAM-based picture book coming out in February about hoodoos and the Paiute legend of how they formed. Non-fictional back matter explains the geologic process that forms the hoodoos. The geology information was vetted for accuracy by Dr. Larry E. Davis, Education Outreach/Geologist at Bryce Canyon National and we worked closely with Glenn Rogers and Clarence John of the Shivwits Band of the Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah to verify the information regarding Paiute culture and history. If you would like to receive a Digital Review Copy (DRC) of this book, please e-mail Donna German at donna at arbordalepublishing.com<mailto:donna at arbordalepublishing.com>. Offer good until January 2, 2017. Once downloaded, the DRC is available on your computer or device for 60 days, at which time it turns into a pumpkin and disappears.

STEAM It Up! The Art and History of STEM
Tuesday, December 6th - 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm @NHMU
Learn how art and history can provide the creative spark and context for STEM subjects. Participate in inquiry labs to explore the history and science behind the ancient art forms of native dyes, homemade inks, and marbled paper.

Saturday, February 4, 2017 - 9:00am to 12:00pm @ NHMU
Is it slate, or is it shale? Is it a rock, or is it a mineral? Interact with quality specimens to build a deeper understanding of the processes that form minerals and rocks and the identifying characteristics of these processes. Walk away feeling more confident guiding your students in constructing explanations and engaging in argument from evidence about Earth’s materials.

USTA Winter Conference

[cid:image012.jpg at 01D24409.76D4D5E0]
Dear Science Teachers,

The Annual Utah Science Teacher Association Conference is fast approaching. Early Bird Registration will close the 6th of January. This will be the best in-state PD available for all subjects and levels of science teaching. We look forward to seeing you on February 10th 2017.

On the night of the conference we have an awards banquet. We are looking for nominations of great science teachers to give these awards to.

There are four board positions open for election this year. If you want to join a great group of science leaders fill out a nomination.

All of the information that you need is on our website. utsta.org<http://utsta.org>

If you have any questions please email any one of the board. All of our contact information is on the website. We hope to see you in February.

Dawn Monson
USTA President.
