Forum & Expo: Tools for STEM Education … Preparations and Applications for Elementary and Middle School Educators
Elementary and middle school educators face unique challenges and extraordinary opportunities to build foundational skills and inspire interest in STEM. How can you do this more successfully? What role do informal groups play in STEM development?
The main focus of the STEM Forum & Expo is geared toward the elementary and middle school levels, where it all begins! However, input and considerations from high school, preservice, college, and university educators, and administrators are essential. After all, we need your feedback to best identify the STEM skill sets that students are lacking when they reach the high school and college levels and to pinpoint ways in which administrators can cultivate the development of successful STEM programs in elementary and middle schools.
The successful implementation of STEM education is "partnership dependent." If you are a stakeholder, you will want to submit a proposal for consideration and/or plan to register for this unique opportunity, which is scheduled at the Atlantic City Convention Center.
