In the final webinar of NCSLA's 2022-2023 webinar series, we are going to focus on phenomena based instruction. Phenomena are the context for the work of both the scientist and the engineer.
Anchoring learning in explaining phenomena supports student agency for wanting to build science and engineering knowledge. Since the new standards are going to have the Science and Engineering Practices built into them, teaching with phenomena will be key in working with students.

The NCSLA Herman Gatling Award for Outstanding Science Education Leadership in North Carolina award goes to the person who has exemplified the high standards the late Herman Gatling of Durham County set in his job and in his life. This award recognizes the recipient as the outstanding science education leader in the state of North Carolina. Herman was given the first award posthumously in 1989; his wife, Emma, accepted his award on behalf of the family. This annual award is sponsored by the Carolina Biological Supply Company.
The recipient of the Gatling Award should be one who has gone above and beyond the requirements of the workplace and provided outstanding leadership and service to science education at the district, regional, and state levels and beyond. The award is presented at the time of the Fall NCSLA membership meeting, typically held in November.
It’s not too early to begin thinking about how you can take an active leadership role in NCSLA. How can you use your strengths and talents to promote teachers, students, and community organization involved in promoting science education in North Carolina? Step up and help lead the way!
While there is a President’s Chain, a Board of Directors, and an Executive Director to provide guidance and leadership for NCSLA, the heart of our organization resides in the work accomplished by our many committee members. Whether it is planning events, growing membership, writing the newsletter, or advocating for science education for all, the committee chairs and their members are the ones who make NCSLA a viable organization.
