Get connected!

Before you continue reading, drop what you are doing and rush over to Facebook to join our EPS science communities! They are #EPSsciSecondary and #EPSsciK-8. (Middle school teachers, you get to belong to TWO fabulous communities!) This is a space for you to ask questions and share resources and ideas.

And for those of you Tweeters (Twitterers?), you can connect with other EPS science teachers using the hash tag #EPSstem. I would also encourage you to use this hashtag to show off all of the cool things that are going on in your class! And don't forget to follow the official EPS science page @EPSscience while you're there.

There might be random awesome gifts given to frequent social media users. (hint, hint)
