PA – ESSP Work in June 2013, State College

June 7, 2013 by Dr. G

Since I was already in north-central Pennsylvania for the NAGT-ES conference, I decided to head down to State College for a couple of days to meet with colleagues for our NSF-MSP grant work (see my post from February’s visit).  As today was a travel day and a chance for me to catch up on some missed work and emails, I also took advantage of visiting some local sites.  I’ve been visiting State College via MegaBus the past couple of years, so having my car this time allowed me the opportunity to explore!  I started with the Millbrook Marsh Nature Center to walk along some of their trails, then I headed over to the Centre Iron Furnace and Mansion, a structure I had driven by on East College Avenue several times and finally have learned its history.

My meetings were very productive!  It is always great to meet with colleagues – but, of course, it always relates to lists and lists of things to do!  But if I didn’t love my work, I wouldn’t be doing this.  I’m super-excited to be able to focus alot of time this summer working with middle- and high-school teachers and continuing to grow the organization I helped co-found, the Pennsylvania Earth Science Teachers Association (PAESTA).
