Join us on Sunday, 22 September, for the first GSA-NESTA GeoTeach Workshop. Hear from a motivating speaker, engage in databased activities, collect NGSS-congruent resources for teaching Earth science during our Share-a-Thon, and participate in meeting activities, such as perusing the Exhibit Hall. This event is free for K-12 educators. However, you must preregister and pay a small fee ($40) to hold your spot in the workshop. As long as you attend and fully participate, your $40 will be refunded to you. Or you can choose to apply the payment to a GSA K-12 membership. Payment must be received no later than 12 September. Also, we are encouraging high school students to participate in the workshop as well. Forty-five openings are reserved for teachers and fifteen are set aside for students. So bring a student along with you! Sign up today as slots will fill up fast!
