Thank you to everyone who attended the successful ISTS 2018 Fall Conference. Held at the FFA Enrichment Center on the Ankeny DMACC Campus, the conference included more than 300 attendees and exhibitors. Attendees enjoyed learning through the 70 break-out sessions, popular EXPO event, more than 30 exhibits, and keynote speaker Dr. David Andersen, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Professor of Physics from the University of Iowa. Below we have a few photos from the conference. More photos will be posted in a few days.
The Pre - Conference Event was held at the Science Center of Iowa. We want to thank the Science Center of Iowa for opening their doors on a Sunday evening and giving is the run of the building. It was very enjoyable to learn about science education and enjoy a scavenger hunt through the exhibits, 2 star shows in the Planetarium, and wonderful food and conversation.
