NSTA14 mementos

What a fantastic time we had at the recent National Science Teachers Association national conference in Boston. We met inspiring educators, re-connected with old friends, and soaked in the vibrant atmosphere that surrounded the conference. We only wish we had had more time there.

We were also humbled by the energizing reception you all gave to miniPCR. Huge thanks to all the teachers who stopped by to share their plans to do more molecular biology with their students, exchange ideas, and to support our project. And special thanks to all attendees of the “20 in 20” workshop. We hope to see you all soon at the next conference and in your schools!!

Being on our feet chatting with many of the 10,000+ teachers was the fun part, but during rare breaks we did manage to squeeze in a few snapshots… see below.
