Are you a member of the Early Childhood Science Interest Forum (ECSIF) yet? You are welcome to join! The ECSIF co-facilitators would like to hear from you about how to make sure people feel welcome and empowered to set the agenda.

How can ECSIF leadership support you?

Come to the annual meeting of the ECSIF at the national NAEYC conference if you are able, on Thursday 11/16 from 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM at the Juniper Omni Hotel at CNN Center.

And share your science education ideas and questions in the Hello Community or on the ECSIF Facebook page.

Hi - Will we (or should I be able to) have discussions within the interest forum pages? I see where I can add resources, but nothing about starting a discussion. Please advise. Thank you. -Kyra

​Hello Kyra, Interest Forums do not have specific discussion forums.  If you are interested in starting a discussion and hope that members of an interest forum joins in the discussion, you may want to write the words "ATTN:  ______ Interest Forum Members" in the Subject line of your post.  I hope this helps.
