Come and join the 6th annual Pin-It!
With this year’s CREATE theme, you will learn and explore new ways to re-CREATE 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 speakers are the YouTube hit Amoeba Sisters.
