How Can I Win In ExploraVision?
All web seminar participants use online tools that allow them to mark-up presenter's slides or share desktop applications in addition to engaging in chat with others online and answering poll questions

This Web Seminar took place on October 13, 2010, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Presenting was Louise McMinn, middle school science coach from Stamford, CT, and Brian Short from NSTA. The presenters gave an overview of the ExploraVision competition and focused specific attention on the elements required to have a successful team outcome.

The presenters provided information about the basic elements of the ExploraVision competition and what teachers can expect. Ms. McMinn shared her experience with team advisors, entry components and how to create high quality entries. Mr. Short talked about the elements that are particularly important to the judges and where participants want to place the bulk of their time and resources. Miz Fischer from Toshiba assisted on the chat, and the participants were able to get all their questions answered.


Twenty-two (22) participants were present at the live Web Seminar in addition to the presenters and NSTA staff. Participating educators represented the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Virginia.


Seminar participants received a one year subscription to one of NSTA’s SciGuides and a certificate of attendance was deposited into their My Transcript area in the NSTA Learning Center for completing the evaluation form at the end of the program.


Here are some comments provided by the participants at the end of the Web Seminar:

  • "Informative if I can get my students interested in forming a team.”
  • “Helpful, interesting, not so overwhelmed by the process.”
  • “I will be coaching 14 teams this year and need to know how to do a better job.”
  • “Gave particulars on past winning entries and how to void the pitfalls.”

Thanks to the participants and the presenters for the learning opportunity, the interactions, and a job well done!
