We wanted to share some quick updates for this year's Rendezvous--

Dear Earth Educators' Rendezvous 2018 participant,

We look forward to your upcoming participation in the fourth annual Earth Educators' Rendezvous in Lawrence, KS this summer.

A few things to note:

  • We've extended the deadline to submit poster and share-a-thon presentations: If you're interested in presenting and haven't submitted an abstract for a poster or share-a-thon (or if you'd like to submit more than one), we have extended the late submission deadline until Sunday, June 3. Wednesday's poster sessions focus on Geoscience Education Research and Professional Development for Undergraduate Students, Graduate Students and Faculty. Friday's poster sessions focus on Broadening Participation and Course Resources. The Share-a-thon Presentations are a new part of this year's Rendezvous and feature round-robin style 1-2 minute "lightning" rounds to preview each presenter's activity. Check it out and consider sharing your research, teaching ideas, and expertise!
  • Seats are still available in many of the Rendezvous morning workshops. Please let your friends and colleagues know about the Rendezvous and encourage them to attend. Registration is open until early July.
  • A trip to Kansas is not complete without a visit to the prairie! Consider joining Sunday's pre-Rendezvous field trip to the Konza Prairie Long Term Ecological Research Site. If you didn't sign up for the field trip as part of your registration, space is still available. Email to be added.
  • Pre-order your Earth Educators' Rendezvous t-shirt! This year's t-shirt depicts the Rendezvous logo as a rising sun against the backdrop of rolling hills with sunflowers. Pre-order by June 15.
  • Summer is always a busy time for travel. Be sure to book your Rendezvous housing soon. Check out the housing options on the Travel and Lodging page. Most blocks are available to take reservations until mid-June.

Additional information on evening events, badge check in, and program updates will be forthcoming. We look forward to seeing everyone this summer in Lawrence!
