Summer Institute 2014
2014 CSTA Conference
On December 4 – 6, 2014, Kim Castagna and Jennifer Foster presented at the NSTA (National Science Teachers Association) regional conference which was held in collaboration with CSTA (California) in Long Beach, CA. They gave 2 presentations of lessons from the 6th grade Science Matters units. Both sessions were very hands-on with teachers participating in energy transfer/transformation lessons and geology earth layers. The participants were thrilled to have these innovative ideas that tied together science content and engineering standards. The sessions were so well attended and enjoyed, we were asked to present “encore” sessions on Saturday after the conference ended. About 40 teachers were so excited to attend this encore energy presentation, they stayed late on Saturday and had a blast!
