The NAGT booth in the exhibitors area is a great spot to ask questions about InTeGrate and meet other people interested in many aspects of geoscience education. Stop by Booth Number 131 and learn about all the great things going on in geoscience ed!
Have you ever learned about something fun and interesting that happened at the meeting after the fact, or even after the meeting? Of course you have. And by the same token, you've probably found out about something that you wish your colleagues and friends had known about but couldn't get word to them. This year, NAGT is going to try to make it easier to know what is going on all across this vast meeting by using social media. If you know of something that you think other members of the InTeGrate community should know about, just send out a tweet and include the hashtag #nagtatagu13. NAGT is gathering all those tweets together on a page so that we can all benefit in near-real time. More details on this will be coming soon. Given the number of tech savvy folks out there, there is the potential for this to be one of the most rewarding meetings yet for everyone!
This is a no host, very casual, come-if-you-can kind of affair. It is a nice opportunity to see each other, the SERC staff, and other people who collaborate with SERC on projects and share your interest in geoscience education. Feel free to bring friends. Hope to see you there.

AGU education sessions include information on pedagogy, climate literacy, integrating research and education, international education and more. There is no shortage of education or science of interest to the InTeGrate Community. NAGT has compiled a page of all the Education-related sessions going on at the AGU meeting so be sure and check it out.
