Twelve science methods students attended the Minnesota Science Teacher Association Conference on Science Education in Duluth on Friday, February 22, 2013. Teacher candidates were able to participate in a number of break out sessions including: Is it science or Magic; Dragonflies; Outdoor Learning; Engineering with Puff Mobiles and Bird Feeders, and Assessment in science among many others. In addition, students were able to increase their own knowledge of the plethora of local resources especially developed for teachers from local agencies like the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources at the Vendor Fair.

Elementary teacher candidates heard Senator Al Franken talk about new legislation that has a dual purpose:  retain teachers in K-12 science and math education and increase the number of students studying math and science for a career.

As they left the conference students enthusiastically proclaimed that the conference was a great and fun event!
