Meteorites in your classroom? - Meteorites Displace Contacts
With support from the UofU and USU NASA Outreach Director, there are several people in the state that can checkout meteorites to teachers so that can be used in their classroom instruction. The following information can be used by all schools in the state both District and Charter. You don't have to be from that school or district to check out and use these materials. In addition to this list of contacts there are several other links to resources for teachers talking about meteorites in their classroom.

For questions about this program please contact John Vanderford, NASA Outreach Director UofU/USU, j.v at usu.edu<mailto:j.v at usu.edu>, 435-797-3568

2018 Area Conference on Science Education - Reno, NV
October 11-13, 2018
Reno-Sparks Convention Center, 4590 S Virginia St, Reno, NV 89502
Conference Strands
To help you make the most of the professional development opportunities available at the Reno conference, the Conference Committee has planned the conference around three strands that explore topics of current significance, enabling to to focus on a specific area of interest or need.
Developing Persistence: The Power of Experience

Failure or delayed success has surprising benefits to students, teachers, and administrators-it often initiates meaningful learning experiences.  Nurturing such experiences is part of three-dimensional learning; educators should support students in developing their own explanations, ideas, and solutions.  Sessions in this strand will focus on the struggles and triumphs that drive learning and explanation development.  Learn from your peers' experiences in persisting as they negotiate the terrain of facilitating science learning for the next generation.

Advancing Three-Dimensional Classroom Culture

Educator understanding of three-dimensional learning is a continuum-from having a firm grasp of the structure of the structure of the three dimensions, to integrating appropriate science practices and crosscutting concepts, to developing grade-level storylines based on phenomena.  In this strand, participants will be able to choose hand-on/interactive sessions based on their needs.

Cultivating Constructive Partnerships

Teaching can be isolating.  Learn how to move beyond your four walls and collaborate with colleagues, informal educators, scientists, and the community.  Increase opportunities to advocate for your students' science learning while you build your leadership skills.  Learn how to enhance your professional growth by using the expertise in your building and your community.  In this strand, presenters will showcase collaboration with business and industry, informal science organizations, policy stakeholders, and colleagues.
