NSTA Conference starts today in Nashville

12,000 science teachers are gathering in Nashville for the annual NSTA conference. You'll find ISS-ABOVE at The Planetary Society booth, showing off our little gadget that tacks the space station. Bill Nye is the keynote speaker this evening. We're eagerly looking forward to find out what his message is to the conference.

Here's the keynote info from NSTA:

Presenter(s): Bill Nye (The Planetary Society: Pasadena, CA)

Wednesday, March 30 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

In his talk, Bill Nye probes scientific efforts to find ice and rocks in space and then nudge them out of the way of Earth’s atmosphere. Achieving this could save us all—and the technological advances along the way will enrich the lives of Earth’s citizens everywhere. 

Bio: Scientist, engineer, comedian, author, and inventor, Bill Nye is a man with a mission: to help foster a scientifically literate society and to help people everywhere understand and appreciate the science that makes our world work. Making science entertaining and accessible is something Bill has been doing most of his life. 

Bill is currently CEO of The Planetary Society. Well known for his Emmy Award–winning show Bill Nye the Science Guy®, he is also host of the series The 100 Greatest Discoveries and Solving for X, a DVD series where he shows how to do algebra along with the P, B, & J (passion, beauty, and joy) of math. 

While you're waiting, hear what he has to say about the ISS-ABOVE and then come visit us at The Planetary Society booth. .
