Happy Spring! NCSLA Members:

I recently returned from the NSTA National Conference in Atlanta Georgia. The theme this year was “Science on My Mind” and included strains such as Evidence of 3D Learning, Science as the Foundation of Stem, Access for All Students, and the Role of Literacy in Science. I ran into many science educator colleagues from throughout the United States and in reflecting reminded me of the importance of NCSLA and networking with our state members.  A real strength of membership in NCSLA is being able to share education goals and challenges with each other and to offer input and support. Networking is critical to forming solutions and sharing resources.  

I would like very much to encourage all members to attend the NCSLA Spring Science Leadership Summit in Raleigh on April 28, 2018.  The Summit: Achieving Excellence in STEM Education in NC, planned by NCSLA Past President, Ann McClung, will have expert science education speakers and STEM activities for exploring.  We are trying something new for NCSLA this year too, a playground of STEM Innovation that will allow participants to "play" with new STEM activities, robots, probes, etc.  

I challenge you to attend and learn something new!  Please bring a friend and plan to sign up for the Spring Summit today.  

Sincerely, Alisa Wickliff

NCSLA President
