Welcome from HASTI President

Welcome to HASTI!
The HASTI Board hopes you feel at home at your 2018 conference. In the last year we have made big changes by reducing costs, changing our conference location, and changing who actually organizes and runs the conference. During this transition countless hours have been spent by the conference committee, your Executive Board, your Executive Director, Carolyn Hayes and your Conference Chair, Ginger Shirley. As we make these changes your help as a volunteer and your constructive criticism will determine not only the success of this year's conference but future conferences as well.

While at the conference take time to visit our exhibitors, to stop by the HASTI booth to talk with your district director and to join one of our affiliates who can help support your specialized area of science teaching.

In my thirty plus years of attending HASTI, I return for the people who I have made connections and for the exchanging of ideas that will improve my classroom. So enjoy your time at HASTI and recharge your batteries and your brains! Share what you do to help other teachers enhance Indiana science classrooms.

Welcome and thanks for attending the 47th Annual HASTI Conference!

Franklin R. Drumwright

HASTI President
