The National Science Teachers Association hosted its 2015 National Conference March 12 to March 15 at Chicago’s McCormick Place, with almost 10,000 teachers in attendance. The conference included a three-day exhibition of the newest science education products on the market, including games and live animal specimens. According to teachers, these tools can provide a way to engage diverse learners in challenge scientific content.
