From March 18-21, NOAA staff participated in the National Science Teacher Association (NSTA) conference in Philadelphia, Penn. The event is the largest annual gathering of science teachers in the nation.

NSTA is one of about 24 major venues that NOAA's Exhibit Program takes part in each year. The gathering was an opportunity for NOAA men and women from a variety of backgrounds and expertise to meet face to face with thousands of educators.

At the event, NOAA staff distributed nearly 10,000 pounds of educational materials ranging from DVDs, to posters, to books. These materials are now making their way into classrooms around the nation.

NOAA scientists and education specialists also delivered a series of talks at the conference to present the latest findings about the impacts of climate change, and to provide ideas and resources that translate climate science to the classroom.

NOAA staff met with thousands of educators at the 2010 National Science Teachers Association annual meeting in Philadelpia, Penn.
