A team called the “rock stars” of education will present at the Los Alamos National Laboratory Foundation’s 15th Annual Conference on Education Oct. 11-12, 7-30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at Buffalo Thunder Resort and Conference Center.

Harry K. Wong and Rosemary Wong, the most sought-after speakers in education and authors of the best-selling book, The First Days of School, will present the keynote session on “Effective Teaching.”

Jeff Goldstein, director of the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education and a popular Huffington Post tweeter, will be the afternoon speaker.

Harry Wong has been called “Mr. Practicality” for his common-sense, research-based, no-cost approach to managing a classroom for student success. He is credited with renewing entire schools and rescuing frustrated teachers. 

The speakers will address two audiences. Oct. 11 is open to public school teachers in Northern New Mexico. Oct.12 is a special presentation to schools participating in LANL Foundation’s Inquiry Science Education Consortium: Dulce, Española, Mesa Vista, Peñasco, Pojoaque, Santa Fe and Springer.

Registration, including, breakfast, lunch and conference materials, is $70 per person for non-ISEC educators and is on line at  www.lanlfoundation.org

The conference is made possible by an investment from Los Alamos National Security, LLC in the ISEC initiative, as well from the Department of Energy.
