Come and join the 7th annual Pin-It!
With this year’s FLY theme, you will learn and explore new ways to spread your wings and FLY with your science classroom. Pin-It's variety of sessions will include different ways to embed personalize learning, implement Schoology, include literacy in your science lessons, use Escape Classroom to review concepts, explore the Klein ISD STEAM Express, and much more. It is also a great way to meet other educators in your area and share your ideas. This year we are happy to announce our keynote speaker is Todd Blackhurst, a manufacturing engineer with over 15 years of experience from multiple Fortune 500 companies.
