The 2010 National Conference on Science and Technology in Out of School Time starts today! We're kicking off the event with a pre-conference symposium focusing on Putting Youth at the Center of Pathways and Systems. Later tonight, an opening reception at the LA Zoo will feature Nick Dragotta of Howtoons, a comic series that incorporates STEM and inspires kids to build things. Most of our attendees will come to the conference tomorrow morning, when we'll hear from our Keynote Speaker Dr. Pedro Noguera.
If you're unable to make it to LA, we have a lot of ways for you to follow the conference from afar! On Twitter, you can follow the conference proceedings at the #scienceafterschool hashtag. Our co-host Project Exploration will be liveblogging many of the conference events and proceedings--check out their blog at http://www.projectexploration.org/blog/. We'll try and post here and on our Facebook page too!
