I am hoping this gets to all esip members, but if I am not able to
send to all, will you please forward. Thanks, Rita
Proposals to the National Science Teachers Association regional
There is funding from the ESIP Ed Committee which may be only
partial support to travel to the NSTA regionals. The three regionals
in 2006 are:
Oct 19-21 Omaha - Mid-West
Nov 2-4 Baltimore - Eastern
Dec 7-9 Salt Lake City - Western
If your institute or organization is near one of these cities, consider
giving a presentation.
The funds will be distributed evenly among the 3 venues ($600 each),
unless decided otherwise by the Chair and Vice Chair due to
cirucumstances (such as if there are no proposals for one of the
venues) Proposals should go to Alan Gould agould at berkeley.edu and
Margaret Margaret.Mooney at ssec.wisc.edu
A proposal will consist of the abstract that you have submitted to the
NSTA online form (deadline Jan 15th, but open now) and an estimate of
your expenses - e.g. driving costs, parking, registration or airfare,
etc. Note that NSTA registration is $95 for non-members for one day.
Your presentation (but not necessarily your abstract) must include
mention of the ESIP Federation Education products and portal, and
mention of some of the other members products, in addition to your own
focus. It has been my experience that titles with the word "free" help
draw audiences. In the case of multiple proposals, the Chair and Vice
Chair will decide how to divide the funds. You will be notified by end
of January by the Ed Committee. Notification of NSTA accepted
proposals is in May.
