For the first episode of It’s Time For Science, we traveled to the National Science Teaching Association (NSTA) conference in Atlanta, Georgia. Host Tom Racine sat down with three educators from South Carolina: Yolanda Bennett, Ed Emmer, and Felipe AndreSilva.
We couldn’t have asked for a more engaging and diverse group, and our conversation includes discussions of equity in teaching science, dealing with teacher burnout in a post-COVID world, and how science education can and should be a transdisciplinary subject involving literacy, math, social studies, and history.
These dynamic educators offer some valuable nuggets of advice at the end. Producer David Lippman also reviews the game Parks from Keymaster Games, and we ask a few NSTA conference attendees the Nerdy Question of the Day.
