Organization of Va Homeschoolers Conference March 21-22

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.

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!!
