Thank you to all that have donated. We have unlocked the Donor Challenge!
NAGT 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" stepped up to initiate a challenge for Rendezvous past and present participants. Friends of NAGT has pledged an initial $4,000 for the first ever NAGT Challenge and these funds were 'unlocked' through raising an additional $4,000 for a dollar-to-dollar match. Unlocking the challenge makes $8,000 available 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.
