SCIENCE EDUCATION COUNCIL OF OHIO
New Haven Lab Teacher Eric Rank suggests re-engineering classrooms by showing teachers experiential engagement in action.
As the Official State Chapter of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), we devote ourselves here to promote teachers who aspire to inspire others to pursue the higher art of our craft.
2015 NSTA Presenter Eric Rank leads a digital STEM lab at New Haven Public Schools in New York. His 2-minute video catalogs simple, experiential engagement lessons visualized, and is worth sharing.
What inspiration might you draw from Eric's work? And what might you add to the conversation? Member blog posts are welcome here. Please help us celebrate your successes.

champions of science:
On a starry night, at the moon's first quarter, mountains in the sky are clearly visible. They are the rings of rock outlining the big pock marks, or craters.
These mountain ranges rise higher than 7,000 feet from the moon's surface, and provide a circle of safe harbor from lunar winds for lands within. So, inside many of the circles you see, serene plains reside.
The northernmost among these celestial sanctuaries is Plato's Plateau, named for the Greek philosopher to whom so much modern-day thought traces its origin.
Here on earth--at the foothills to the Rocky Mountains on July 26, in fact--Plato's Plateau cast a perfect reflection. Just then, past, present, and future SECO presidents gathered at the 2016 National Congress on Science Education.
Together, these women provide a ring of shelter, with lasting continuity, for the benefit of SECO members.Each, at the peak of her individual career, provides a unique perspective which combine to cover Plato's proofs full-circle.
Kay Wagner's monumental achievements over decades of service to SECO epitomize strong Ethos. Kristie Reighard's attention to an ocean of communication, events, and issues as current president promotes a sende of logical strength. Angie McMurry's enthusiasm is perfectly placed to encourage organizational growth for the foreseeable future.
Together with their abiding leadership, may we grow the mountains in our skies, and shepherd all lands within.
