STEC participated in the Va Homeschoolers 2014 Conference and Resource Fair, March 21-22 where we provided lots of sensory experiences with plants, insects, shells, rocks,
magnifiers and microscopes.
Getting a magnified view of an insect
Checking out the stereoscope
Enjoying a "Patent leather" or "Jerusalem" beetle (Odontotaenius disjunctus)
Admiring shells through magnification
STEC also hosted a conference-wide spaghetti bridge
building challenge and presented two lectures:
"Developing and Implementing a Curriculum Web" and
"Sensational Science on a Shoestring"
STEC wrapped up the second day with a slime-making activity for about 40 youth participants.

What a great conference!!
