Dear ASTE Conference Attendees,
Thank you to the over 350 of you who participated in our first ever Virtual Conference! We owe a debt of gratitude to our Thread Coordinators, Proposal Reviewers, Presiders, Zoom Hosts, and all the ASTE staff (Program Coordinator, Brooke Whitworth, Executive Director- Kate Popejoy, and Director of Electronic Services- John Rhea) and the ASTE leadership who worked behind the scenes to make this happen! While we weren’t able to be in Salt Lake City with Kathy Trundle and Max Longhurst, we know they are planning to host us in the future!
We are eager to hear your input about this, and future, conferences. Please take the time to share that via our 2021 Annual Conference Survey. We would appreciate your responses no later than February 15th to allow our Conference Planning Committee to take these into consideration.
CONGRATULATIONS to our Three-Minute Thesis competition winner, Stephanie Stehle from George Mason University who presented High School Students’ Use of Metacognition in Physics Problem Solving.
On behalf of the SITE Science Education SIG Chair Joshua Ellis and Co-Chair Dr. Nathan Dolenc, we are pleased to announce this year’s NTLI Fellow as Prof. Kate Walker for her presentation, Undergraduate Utilization of Virtual Reality in Conducting Student Designed Scientific Research.
