The Weekend ForeCAST - An Overview of CAST 2015

Posted by Marissa Alonzo on November 16, 2015


This past week Accelerate Learning attended the CAST conference in Fort Worth, TX. The event was packed with teachers and members of STAT (Science Teachers Association of Texas) as they gathered to learn about new classroom techniques, see varied exhibits, and invest their time in professional development outside of their classroom. 

Our team arrived on Wednesday ready to take on the task of building our front line exhibit and  make sure we had everything ready to showcase our numerous products and give examples of our activities. As we worked to put together the booth, our experts in professional development and curriculum prepared themselves for their upcoming sessions.

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!
