In October 2010, three nonprofit organizations co-sponsored an all-day Science Education Summit to introduce some 400 science teachers to Ohio's new state standards for K-12 science education. I was contracted to attend the summit and write the report; I also ended up being the official photographer, and designing the layout for the 24-page report. Because the biggest change to Ohio's state science standards will be getting teachers to use empirical inquiry rather than lecture, the summit's afternoon breakout sessions gave teachers a chance to experience the method. Thus, in addition to the expected photographs of panel discussions, I wanted the images in the report also to convey the engagement of the teachers. The report, published January 2011, is online at http://www.smartconsortium.org/user-files/SMART%20summit%20report%20fnl%20ebk%201-18-11.pdf .
