The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) has some 60,000 members. Each spring the NSTA holds a national meeting about science education. This year’s meeting was at San Antonio’s Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
For several years I was a judge for a major NSTA competition sponsored by Duracell. This provided an opportunity to see some of the best science and engineering projects conducted by students from around the country. This also provided an opportunity to attend NSTA national meetings and meet hundreds of science teachers and students.
