Next year in New Orleans!

Well, this conference is history, and I’m exhausted in a good way— both physically and mentally. From talks by astronaut Barbara Morgan, Rodger Bybee, and Bill Nye the Science Guy to the awesome resources in the exhibit area to the sessions in which educators so generously shared their experiences and expertise, it was a great event. Thanks to all who planned this! Of course there were a few glitches (such as a shuttle bus driver new to Boston who unexpectedly gave us a roundabout tour of the city), and the sheer size of the conference center and the surrounding hotel area was daunting, but I’m sure that all of the more than 15,000 (so I’m told) attendees found new ideas and resources for their classes and schools. I hope that they found time to soak up a little Boston history and culture, too.

Next year, the conference is scheduled for New Orleans. See you there! Until then, as they say in Louisiana, “Laissez les bon temps rouler!”

  1. We must have been on the same bus

    I think I was on that bus too! The guy got lost at the tunnel and we ended up in downtown Boston! I must say, the transportation logistics were not planned out very well. Not to mention, the buses were HOT!
