    By the end of 8th grade most students have made up their minds about liking math & science.

    They have already decided if they are going to dig in and pursue higher level math & science. A big reason they choose math & science is the role models they have in their lives. Seeing a STEM professional use math and science to do innovative --and downright cool-- things can inspire students to engage in science and math.

    MCESA and Eight, Arizona PBS, are inviting all middle school classrooms to tune in and meet one of our STEM Professional Mentors.

    Meteorite Hunter Geoff Notkin of Aerolite Meteorites

    Tuesday, Sept. 8, 10 a.m.

    Meteorites, geology, astronomy

    Geoff Notkin starred in three seasons of the multi award-winning television adventure series Meteorite Men for Science Channel and hosts the educational series STEM Journals for Cox Media, currently filming its third season. He has also appeared in shows for Discovery, NASA EDGE, TLC, PBS, A&E, National Geographic Channel, History Channel, Travel Channel, and the BBC. He is a science writer, meteorite specialist, photographer, world traveler, and the owner of Aerolite Meteorites LLC, a company that provides meteorite specimens to collectors and institutions worldwide. He has worked with multiple museums around the globe and has a minor planet named after him in honor of his work!

    Adventuring has taken Geoff to forty-five countries and some of our planet’s most remote areas including northern Siberia, Chile’s Atacama Desert, the Australian Outback and he has three times crossed the Arctic Circle.

    Fascinated by meteorites since he was a little boy, by the age of seven Geoff was already an avid rock hound and fossil collector. His father was an amateur astronomer and shared a love of stargazing. “I was stunned that you could actually see other worlds from a suburban London garden,” Geoff states: “I suppose the epiphany came when I visited London’s Geological Museum as a child. I was awed by the Hall of Meteorites and realized that studying and collecting meteorites would be a unique combination of geology and astronomy. I have been hooked ever since.”


    Requirements to participate are:

    • an internet connected computer with speakers &
    • a desire to expose students to STEM careers.

    Registrants will be emailed the link to the live stream the day before and of the event.

    Being a great instructional leader is the goal. Figuring out how to do everything else is the challenge. Everyday you are making great things happen. And everyday you are looking to do it just a bit better.

    Attending workshops & trainings doesn't always help you make things better...you might want to try participating in a un-conference on instructional leadership.

    Share what you are doing & hear from others about the strategies they use to supervise & support amazing instruction. At an un-conference you are the expert & you design your own learning!
