Work is the last thing you want to think about right after school ends, but you should start planning to attend these STEM teacher conferences this year!

Earlier this year, STEM Jobs published its list of five important STEM teacher conferences that educators should attend during the first half of 2018. Now that June has arrived and school has ended, it’s time to start planning for the 2018-19 school year. Plan a summer road trip with fellow teacher friends or schedule a few days during autumn for these incredible STEM teacher conferences.

STEM teacher conferencesJuly 9-11, 2018

Philadelphia, PA

This year’s National Science Education Leadership Association (NSELA) Summer Leadership Institute focuses on four areas of STEM leadership: Equity for Students in STEM, Authentic Collaboration to Connect Mathematics and Science, Computational Thinking/Computer Science, and Career Implications for Science Education. Teachers will learn how to cultivate computational learning skills for student application in STEM. There will also be information regarding how to work with English learners while teaching these skills to students. As the goal of education professionals in these subjects shifts toward greater inclusion, STEM teacher conferences are going to relay methods of reaching students who might otherwise not succeed in science, technology, engineering, and math. During this conference, particular attention is given to forging relationships between science and math teachers.
