I attended many workshops during the two days of the conference. We talked about using animation to show scientific concepts, increasing cultural awareness in lessons, and using Twitter to increase participation in science and math lessons.
I got a chance to see amazing things like this lunar lander that first landed on the Moon on July 21, 1969! This, and other amazing pieces of space history, are found at the National Air and Space Museum that is part of the Smithsonian Institute.
I came across the actual book that contains the first mention of Ptolemy's views on what our universe looks like. Can you remember Ptolemy's theory? The first person to comment on this blog with the correct answer will get a prize!
Springtime in Washington, DC is a beautiful sight! These azaleas were on display in the rotunda of the National Gallery of Art.
What a wonderful trip! I can't wait to put to use all that I learned during my quick weekend trip to the GK-12 conference.
