What an amazing week! The staff at Flinn Scientific had the pleasure of meeting over 1,000 of the best science teachers in the country during our workshops at NSTA. If you were at the NSTA National Conference and missed one of our sessions, or if you could not make it to Indianapolis feel free to print or download a handout from any or of all our workshops.
The fun did not end in our workshop room. Flinn Scientific saw a constant stream of teachers at our exhibit booth throughout the conference. Ranging from pre-service to some with over 40 years experience, everyone found something new and exciting this year with Flinn. We had a raffle at our Morning of Chemistry workshop for over $1,000 in prizes, and another raffle in our booth for an Ohaus Balance, Ken-A-Vision Cordless Microscope, and a complete set of our ChemTopic Lab Manuals. The results are now posted, make sure to check and see if you are a big winner.
Three full days of professional development, new classroom ideas, and exhibit hall fun was capped off by our "Morning of Chemistry - Enlightening Indy!" chemical demonstration show presented by Rhonda Reist from Olathe North high school in Olathe, KS. Those who were lucky enough to get a seat in the crowded ballroom Friday morning were entertained and en-light-ened by 16 unique demonstrations. This was the highlight of the conference for many in attendance.
