On Saturday, January 28, a group of educators from western North Carolina gathered at the Kimmel School at Western Carolina University for an exceptional in-person event surrounding DEN SciCon 2012. After working through the morning sessions of SciCon together, we enjoyed an amazing tour of the Kimmel School with two of their esteemed professors. Talk about seeing STEM education come to life! Most of us who attended are excited to bring our students back to the Kimmel School to catch a glimpse of the possibilities that await them in the learning fields of the future. It’s not just “shop class” anymore!
