Long but exciting week at the AERA conference in NYC. I’ve had a cold for the last several weeks so I didn’t see as much of the conference as I might have, but found some really inspiring work nonetheless. Maisie Gholson was such a treat to watch, as were numerous Vanderbilt friends. An evening trip to the American Museum of Natural History was an obvious highlight, as was learning about the research program at AMNH. Finally digging into their call for a coherent research agenda in informal science learning in preparation for some work this summer at PacSCI and CWB! Now, to get through the last bits of this semester.
