In March, WATERS fellows, teachers and PI's had the opportunity to attend the Annual NSF GK-12 Conference in Washington D.C. This meeting gives us the opportunity to share our program's accomplishments, as well as network with other GK-12 grant recipients. WATERS fellows presented a poster at the poster session and were able to attend activities, mixers, and discussions of GK-12 science integration and resources.
In addition, two WATERS fellows, Tabitha and Amber, were selected to present their thesis research and classroom integration at NSF headquarters.
And after a couple days of conference, it's good to get out and see the capital!
Although the Reflecting Pool wasn't reflecting much, Dale did manage to find a prehistoric mosquito, making the trip an overall success!
