I had the good fortune of attending the Alaska Science Consortium this fall. The group sponsors a Math/Science conference every other year. This year the meeting was held in Juneau. This was my second trip to Juneau. I flew in on a beautiful day. Miles and miles of glaciers and mountains. I forgot and checked my camera. I could have gotten some great Earth Science pictures. 5 hours of mechanical delays in Anchorage cut in to my glacier hiking time, but the sunset was beautiful.
The conference sessions were great. I went to a lot of sessions on science notebooks. One of the best was on the effects of climate change on seabirds. It was good to meet with other professionals. I have lots of new ideas for my classes.
