On Saturday, January 22, twenty educators from across Southwestern North Carolina met at Discovery Place in Charlotte for an in-person event to celebrate Sci Con 11. We received a special tour from John Leonard, from Discovery Place, who shared with us many of the wonderful things that Discovery Place has to offer for schools. For example, did you know that any 5th grade classes in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System can attend their new RACE exhibit for free? Awesome, huh?! After a great visit and tour of the newly renovated and updated Discovery Place with John, we enjoyed lunch at the Sci Con 11 events together. We networked, watched the live webinars and shared how we can incorporate these into our own schools as professional development events.
Be on the look-out for more events coming to North Carolina this spring!
