Happy National DEN Teacher Appreciation Day!


deIt’s an annual dilemma here at the DEN.  What do we give our STARs for National Teacher Appreciation Day?  Steve suggested an iPad for everyone while I suggested we raffle off his.  The conversation ended.

Matt Monjan wanted to give every STAR dinner with Hall Davidson, but we secretly know that Matt just wanted dinner with Hall.

Justin Karkow thought it would be nice to bring back the hydro clocks, but we didn’t get the order submitted in time.

So, after much deliberation it dawned on us…

For National DEN Teacher Appreciation Day we have decided to give all of our STARs:

  • 80,000 video segments
  • 284 explorations
  • 39 virtual labs
  • 19 Fun-damentals
  • 72 interactive videos
  • 20 simulations
  • 527 animations
  • 459 eBooks
  • 161 games
  • 167 skill builders
  • 466 songs
  • 3,000 sound effects
  • and more!

All STAR Discovery Educators can now explore the resources in DE streaming Plus (which includes the unbelievable LIFE series), DE Science for Elementary, DE Science for Middle School and DE Health for 90 days. 

All you have to do is visit this page on the new DEN online community website, log in and follow the directions.

Then join us today at 5 PM ET for a webinar where we’ll give you a tour of the content you probably haven’t seen before.
