StemCON 2016

3rd Annual STEM Conference, April 8, 2016

Best STEM Practices for the Next Generation

STEM education in the United States is finally making headway, but we have a long way to go before students are fully equipped with the skills they need for success in the 21st century. The good news is that STEM educators from across the country do not have to reinvent the wheel! They can draw upon established best practices and the latest lessons learned from experts in implementing and carrying out successful STEM programs in K-12 schools across the nation. Brand new teachers to seasoned educators, principals, and superintendents will return home from the STEM Conference with a toolkit full of new and tested strategies for offering better and more innovative STEM education in their own schools.
