The 7th-annual conference hosted by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) will offer opportunities for educators to learn more about engaging students in STEM and promoting these subjects among underrepresented groups. Partners include American Society for Engineering Education,
Michigan Economic Development Corporation, and STEMx. Teachers can choose to participate in panels such as “Recruiting and Retaining Minorities and Women in Engineering,” “The STEM Influence on Autonomous Vehicles,” “Leveraging Partnerships to Ensure a Future Ready Workforce,” and “Design for Success: Engaging Diverse Learners in STEM.” As one of the most popular STEM teacher conferences, the expo also includes an Elementary STEM Showcase and a session to promote “Design Thinking: A Hands-On Workshop for Navigating Challenges in Your Class, School, and Life.”
Don’t forget to visit the STEM Jobs booth to get free resources for your classroom, then check in on social media using #NSTA2018 and #NSTA.
