Tech or Treat Time

It is ‘Tech or Treat Time’! On Saturday, October 24th, the Discovery Educator Network will host its free Fall Virtual Conference. Many cities throughout the United States are hosting face to face events in conjunction with the virtual conference sponsored by state leadership councils. The theme is ‘Tech or Treat’ and there will be treats galore given away that day. If you submit a picture of yourself in a costume you can win prizes for your classroom. One special treat  is that we finally get to find out what ‘AREA 51′ is!

The virtual conference will begin at 9am EST and will run until 3pm EST. You can find out more information about this event at http://blog.discoveryeducation.com/fall-virtcon-2010/.
