Patti spoke on STEM integration...what it is and what it is not...
and tons of ways to include meaningful STEM-focused lessons across the curriculum. She is so dynamic and influential (even through an iPhone screen) that I ended up purchasing 2 books she mentioned,
reconsidered the focus of my graduate studies,
and actually entertained the idea of switching to elementary or middle school just so I could make an inflatable
that represents a biome,
the human body, the sea floor or any other space imaginable.

I know that I cannot begin to do her presentation justice, so I've linked to the LiveStream archive and her wiki (where there are many more resources) so that you can see for yourself.
Who would have guessed on a Tuesday afternoon in July, Discovery Education would have ignited such inspiration in a girl 10 hours away???!!!?? Thanks Discovery Ed and thanks Patti Duncan!
