Earth Educators' Rendezvous 2018
July 16-20, 2018 | University of Kansas
Help Unlock the Donor Challenge!
NAGT's is working hard to make sure the Rendezvous is an event that educators can attend regardless of financial resources. To this end, a group of "Friends of NAGT" has stepped up to initiate a challenge for Rendezvous past and present participants. Friends of NAGT has pledged an initial $4000 for the first ever NAGT Challenge. The only way we can 'unlock' these funds is to raise an additional $4,000 for a dollar-to-dollar match. If we are successful, we will have $8,000 to provide travel stipends for participants to attend the 2019 Rendezvous. Give now through your NAGT Membership account and select the Professional Development Fund.

Who is Rendezvous for?
Our program is designed to appeal to everyone from instructors and graduate students attending their first Earth-education--themed meeting, to experienced STEM education researchers, to administrators who want to better support students in their programs. Among many options, participants can learn about new teaching approaches, discover opportunities to get involved in research programs, prepare for an academic career, or discuss how to approach teaching and learning challenges in their classroom.
