Experience Carolina's "World of Inquiry" at a Conference Near You
Carolina's team attends several domestic and international education conferences every year, including the national and regional National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) conferences (and many others). At each conference our exhibits provide you the opportunity to explore our products through interactive workshops. Our exhibits let our staff learn how we can better serve you—a crucial component of our world-class support.
Stop by our booth at any of the conferences for an experience that is:
- Hands-On—Test drive our products and discover (or rediscover) Carolina quality
- Educational—Learn about a concept or procedure that has always intrigued you
- Fun—Enjoy learning and doing in a relaxed, collegial environment

Exhibits and In-Booth Demonstrations
When you visit a conference where Carolina is exhibiting, step into our booth to enter a true science education "experience". We offer continuous engaging, hands-on demonstrations where you can get involved—and maybe even walk away with some goodies of your own.
Plus, each in-booth demonstration visitor will receive a Carolina QuickTips™ sheet that features an overview of the demo, materials list, activity procedure, and additional information so you can re-create these useful activities in your own classroom. You can also speak with our expert staff members to learn about our latest products and services. Plus, we love to meet teachers!
Carolina offers a wide range of workshop sessions at most of the conferences we attend. Workshops usually take a hands-on approach, where attendees get a chance to experience our products and solutions. Our broad topic coverage assures that there is something for everyone, including Life Science, Physical Science, Earth and Space Science, Curriculum Programs, eLearning Solutions, Inquiry-Based Education Topics, and much more. If you are attending a conference with Carolina workshops, be sure to sign up early, as most of our workshops fill up fast.
