2013-2014 SC2 Conference
On the Road with (SC)2!

The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) held their area conference in Charlotte, NC in November 2013. To support NSTA we did NOT hold the annual (SC)2 conference in Myrtle Beach during the 2012 and 2013 school years.

It was great to see all of those that attended the South Carolina Science Council (SC)2 Breakfast/Business Meeting at the NSTA Conference in Charlotte. We look forward to more events like this in the future.

Please help us thank Carolina Biological Supply for sponsoring the breakfast.
