The theme for this year's conference is SEP by SEP. Due to the demand for the conference and venue space restrictions, there are several "Featured Speakers", not a single keynote. These are nationally recognized experts on NGSS, STEM, and Science.
For the second year, we are offering double session, hands-on workshops included with the conference fee. These hands-on workshops will allow for 1.5 hours of presenter led group work, collaboration, and activities. These workshops will have limited seating and require a special sign-up process after registration.
The final list of workshops will be available in September. One example, returning again this year, will be the popular iFLY Workshop. Participants will visit the iFLY facility around the corner from the conference facility and learn about their STEM curriculum, tour the facility, and experience indoor skydiving! (LIMITED SEATING)
[Sign-up information will be emailed to all registered attendees a few weeks before the conference on a first-come first-serve sign-up basis.]
