NSTA in Dallas: Science Everywhere
I recently attended the NSTA Annual Convention in Dallas, TX. I got to meet with a lots of teachers while waiting in line to chat with Bill Nye (aka The Science Guy), attending a wealth of interesting sessions, and shuttling around town in those big buses!
It was a great experience, and as often happens during those conventions, I can't stop thinking about science. While eating dinner one evening down in Dallas I snapped this photo, where I 'see' photosynthesis, electrical current passing through a resistive media to create light and heat, reflection from a very large mirror, scattering of light to create a big blue sky, and rapid cooling due to the decreasing sunlight.
Science is all around us, so be sure to look for things around you every day!
