DEN National Institute 2009

I have a Plan B in case I don't get accepted for a fellowship this summer. And this is another exciting event that I look forward to...

Congratulations on being selected to attend the Discovery Educator Network’s National Institute on July 13-17, 2009 at the Headlands Institute in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. We are very excited about this opportunity to connect you with fellow STARs from all over the country.

We received a lot of great applications this year - many more than we were able to accept. Each application went through a blind review process and was scored by six different members of the DEN team.

Thank you for being such an active member of the DEN!

The next step, if you are still interested in attending, is to send me ( an email confirming your acceptance of a spot at the DEN National Institute.

We have a very long waiting list so you must let me know by Friday, April 24, 2009 at 5 PM EDT. If I do not hear from you by then, we will give your spot to another STAR on the waiting list.

After the RSVP window closes and we have a confirmed list of attendees (Monday, April 27), I will send out additional information to help you coordinate travel plans with each other, etc. However, if you want to search for flights in the interim we will be starting on Monday, July 13 at 2 PM PDT and finishing at 12 PM PDT on Friday, July 17. The closest major airport is San Francisco International (SFO).

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send me an email (

On behalf of the entire DEN team, CONGRATULATIONS!
