Are you attending Entomology2017 in Denver, CO this fall? The ESA Education and Outreach committee's symposium was not selected as a member symposium, so we're handling the topic a different way this year.
We are creating a "submission swarm" of topics related to entomology outreach during the meeting this year. If you have not yet committed to give an oral presentation during the meeting this year, here's your chance to join a movement! We are seeking presentations on all things entomology outreach. Here's how to submit:
- First, pick a topic that deals with entomology outreach. Think lesson plans, online resources, citizen science, working with clubs, resources for teachers, outreach web sites, app development, high school curriculum, insects in art/jewelry/movies/music/comic books/Pokemon cards/pop culture, fly fishing with live insects, science camps, entomophagy, insect collecting, or maybe even making insect balloon animals!
- Write an abstract.
- Start a new submission session on the ESA site and submit as a ten minute paper. When you submit, don't choose a symposium, but scroll to the bottom of the page and choose "no selection". P-IE members may want to choose "Extension - Youth and Adult Education".
- In the comments section, state that your presentation would like to be grouped with talk #122375 (Presenter: Held).
- Email your title, authors, and presentation number to David Held (firstname.lastname@example.org) by May 15.
