CAST Recap

Posted by Science Explored on November 14, 2012

CAST 2012 in Corpus Christi was a blast!  Fresh air, sea breeze, and blue, blinking Perry’s everywhere – if you didn’t make it this year, you missed out.  We got to meet a huge number of great teachers, educational leaders, and even parents.  The feeling was truly “fandemonium” between running our video testimonials, giving out TEKS tracker posters (download yours by visiting our Pinterest), cramming our suite full of eager educators, and showing previews of STEMscopes 2.0.

If you are starting feel jealous that you missed out, we brought a small piece of CAST to you. You can view a video interview with founder, Dr. Reid Whitaker, live from the conference hall floor.  Additionally, because there was a lot of hubbub and ear-to-ear grins for those that got to see the STEMscopes 2.0 preview, we will be uploading the preview, so check back soon!

Most importantly, we left CAST feeling renewed and empowered to help teachers!  Your input keeps STEMscopes vibrant, created STEMscopes 2.0, and will push students to the next level.  To everyone who joined us, thank you for all your continued support, energy, and thoughtful feedback that go into improving STEMscopes.  We could not do what we do without our amazing group of teachers that help bring the love of science into classroom across Texas. 

We look forward to seeing you next fall at CAST 2013 here in Houston!  Please come by, visit us, and recharge your “teaching batteries” and attend our workshops on the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and pedagogy that’ll help you get the most out of STEMscopes.
