The theme for this year's conference is Relevant Engaging Authentic Learning (REAL). Due the demand for the conference and venue space restrictions, there will not be a single keynote. Instead this year we will be offering several "Featured Speakers". These are nationally recognized experts on NGSS and STEM.
[More information on these speakers will be available in October!]
New this year are double session, hands-on workshops. These hands-on workshops will allow about 1.5 hours of presenter led group work and collaboration. These workshops will have limited seating and most will be free as part of the conference fee. (For any requiring a fee, that will be handled directly with the presenter/organization and noted in the workshop description.)
- iFLY Workshop - One of the workshops will be a visit to the iFLY facility around the corner from the conference facility and learn about their STEM field trips and curriculum, tour the facility, and experience indoor skydiving for yourself! (Additional fee for this workshop.)
[More information on workshops will be available here in late October. Sign-up information will be emailed to all registered attendees a few weeks before the conference.]
