You can find the Rochester Area Colleges’ Center for Excellence in Math and Science in Booth #77 at the STANYS Annual Conference which will be held at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center November 1-4.

We are giving away a membership to the National Science Teacher’s Association (NSTA) to one of the teachers who fills out the Preliminary Nomination Form nominating a teacher for the Second Excellence in STEM Teaching Award.

Hope to see you there!

SciPacks: A Wealth of Engaging Resources

Global Climate Patterns

Weather and Climate: Global Climate Patterns

When I first heard the name of this new web resource, SciPacks, I pictured a backpack neatly containing compartmentalized science resources. In reality, it’s even better… the ‘backpack’ is overflowing! Visit the website of the National Science Teachers Association’s Learning Center¬† to see all SciPacks offer.

Currently, visitors are able to download the Oceans Effect on Weather and Climate Pack free of charge. To try it out, you’ll need to enter your email address and create a password, but once you’ve done this, you can access the SciPack for one year.

Browse over fifteen pages of diagrams, text,¬†movie, and sound files while you learn about our Earth’s environment. These facts and figures reach beyond the title’s claim out to many other areas of Earth Science.

Enjoy the quest!
