National Association of GeoScience Teachers Meeting
The 2019 National Association of Geoscience Teachers – Eastern Section (NAGT-ES) meeting will be held in Martinsburg, WV and the eastern panhandle of West Virginia June 6, 7, and 8. Though some of the program has not been ratcheted down as of right now, I can say that what is scheduled should meet various interests of all that attend.
