Hi, I’m back in your earbuds to start 2018 off right! And as promised, for season 2 we are opening up our conference vaults. The first session we are going to share is my most popular one – The Three Keys to Teaching Science and today we are going to kick that off with chatting about the basics of hands-on science.
