Join us for the 2014 STEM Forum, a unique, focused event that brings together (informal and formal) educators and exhibiting companies who are interested in, and/or who have tools and resources to share that will ensure successful implementation of STEM education into our schools and communities.
Objectives of the Forum are to:
- Help educators better understand the significance of STEM Education, which is defined by the committee as an integration of disciplines that removes the traditional barriers between Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, and instead focuses on innovation and the applied process of addressing questions and designing solutions to complex contextual problems using current tools and technologies
- Bring an awareness and understanding of how STEM can be implemented, applied, and sustained in a K–12 setting
- Provide examples of successful outreach programs and partnerships
- Assist in identifying benchmarks for successful STEM programs and partnerships
If you are searching for ways to immediately and effectively apply STEM education in a preK–12 setting or to implement STEM as a best practice, you should plan to attend this event. By attending the 2014 Forum you will have the opportunity to network, learn, and interact with colleagues from your respective teaching community.
