Best of #gtchat: Science Exploration Resources!

At last, the “Best of #gtchat – Science Exploration” list is ready!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our June 18th #gtchat on Science Exploration. So many of you shared such valuable resources and global links for our aspiring young science lovers! Here’s hoping parents of gifted students and teachers from New Mexico to New Zealand will enjoy the links and share them freely. Also, please feel free to add new resources (in the comments section below).

I also want to thank those individuals who recently became individual #gtchat sponsors over the past two months by donating between $20 and $100. You help make Global #gtchat possible! Together with sponsors, like The Carol Martin Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science in Kentucky, Global #gtchat will continue to thrive, as we work to make a difference on behalf of gifted learners worldwide!

So, without further ado, here’s the “Best of #gtchat: Science Exploration Resources/Sites/Links”:

Lastly, I need to mention that a #Science Chat now takes place on Twitter every other Tuesday at 9:00 p.m. Eastern. Click here for a recent article about #scichat in Edutopia.

Thank you again to everyone who continues to make Global #gtchat a vibrant community; you all inspire me! And yes, details on the Global #gtchat T-shirts will be forthcoming. Stay tuned!

Warmest regards,

Deborah Mersino
