NSTA Name Change Discussion | Posted in NSTA New Name

Welcome!  Thank you for joining your fellow NSTA members in this discussion forum. 

This morning in St. Louis, I will make the announcement that the NSTA Board of Directors recommended that we change our association name from the National Science Teachers Association to the National Science Teaching Association. Background information about this decision and the voting process is available here and in the upcoming issue of NSTA Reports.

I look forward to your comments, thoughtful reflection, and response to this recommendation and hope that in the end, you will join us by casting your vote for Science Teaching!

Physiology/Anatomy Project Ideas? | Posted in Life Science

Another idea is to have the students embark on a "Fantastic Voyage" based on the movie/book from the 60s. They have to "travel" through a patients body to destroy a blood clot in the patient's brain. Students can write a dramatic narrative or dialogue that incorporates factual information about body systems, they could write a computer program or animation about a voyage through the body, write a newspaper article, etc.

Science Trips | Posted in Informal Science

We studied habitats and what animals eat. We have a place here locally called Bear Country USA. We took a tour of the facility and then the nutritionist for the animals came and showed us how they prepare the meals for the bears and other animals. There was actually a Scholastic News article about how meals are prepared at zoos or animal sanctuaries. It was perfect timing with our field trip. If you have a local zoo or animal rescue place you can ask if you can take a field trip and talk about nutrition of animals .
