can you explain the difference between a year one and year two applicant?
Kate Soriano
01:44:52
I see your question, Pamela, and will ask at the next question break.
Amanda Upton
01:44:56
A year one applicant is a teacher who has applied/won for the first time. Year two would be a teacher who has won as a regional winner, who will be competing for the national prize package.
Gwen Jones

I am trying to understand what type of experiment. Can you give me an example of previous experiments?
Kate Soriano
01:45:48
Thanks, Gwen. I'll ask your question at the next question break.
Kate Soriano
01:46:04
Thanks for answering Pamela's question, Amanda.
Amanda Upton
01:46:34
My pleasure. It can be confusing because they win in one year and it carries over into the next school year.
Pamela
01:46:37
Amanda, does a year 2 teacher use the same portal and procedure to enter, as a year one? And is year two the “grand prize winner?”
Amanda Upton
01:47:30
To enter there is a new link on the webpage every year. For follow up for the grand prize the teacher submits the final information in their prior year site login.
Amanda Upton
01:47:59
Once you have an account you should be able to see each site through the Reviewr system.
Kate Soriano

We're coming up to another question break but you can send questions after the presentation to shellsciencelab@nsta.orgshellsciencelab@nsta.org
