Full STEM Ahead!

Join us at this year's NSTA Conference (#NSTA14) for a special series of twelve hands-on workshops featuring thought-leaders in STEM education who will guide teachers through the challenges, the rewards and the "how-to" of inspiring the world's next generation of scientists. From Bringing Technology into Your STEM Class to Project-Based Science, to Merging the Three Deminsions of the Next Generation Science Standards (and everything in between), our expert presenters will explore and share thought-provoking, practical instruction on how to incorporate STEM into your curricula and how to engage students in new and exciting ways.  We look forward to meeting you and to exploring The Future of Education!
