- Earth Educators' Rendezvous-- Oral and Poster Sessions Announced. Early bird registration deadline: April 13
Many of us have interests in multiple areas of Earth Science education (in addition to our discipline-specific interests), and the Rendezvous is designed to allow attendees to explore these areas in ways not possible during conventional scientific meetings. The Contributed Program is a critical component to this end, and offers both a venue to present work and an opportunity to see the depth and breadth of what is going on in the Earth Science education community. Now is the time to register– Early bird deadline is April 13!
