DEN SciCon 2011 Comes to Tennessee

We are back!  That’s right, the TN DEN blog is back, and have we got great news for Discovery Educator Network members in TN!

We are hosting three…that’s right… THREE live events for the DEN SciCon Virtual Conference happening January 22nd!  So, no matter where you live in TN, you can attend a live event with relative ease and be part of one of the most fantastic groups of educators anywhere on the planet…the DEN!

You can find more information about the online portion of the day by going here: http://blog.discoveryeducation.com/scicon-2011/.  You will find all times and webinar titles.  Registration for the virtual conference only is also found there.

So why go to a live event?  First, you will get to spend quality time with educators who share the same passions for Discovery and science that you have. Second, there will be live workshops at the events that will not be available to you online.  Third (as if you need another reason), the food is on us!  And fourth, we will be skyping all three groups together so we can all meet one another across the state!

On site registration begins at 8:30 local time.  The first session kicks off promptly at 9 AM local time!

You must pre-register online to attend the live events of the conference.  This will help us coordinate room space and food expenses.  If you register, but later decide you cannot attend, please contact the coordinator for your event at least 48 hours prior to let him or her know you cannot attend.

This year’s SCIcon will have a special presentation from Reed Timmer, Extreme Meteorologist and TVN team leader, for Discovery Channel’s hit series Stormchasers.

Join thousands of educators from around the world for an amazing day of professional development sessions, networking and sharing.
