The fourth annual VMI STEM Education Conference explores the 'T' for technology in STEM education. The conference will focus on teachers of students in grades 3-8 and their administrators. While there will be a few more offerings focused on technology, the conference will continue to offer many workshops on the building blocks of STEM: Science, Engineering and Math.
Speakers include Dr. Jeff Goldstein, director for the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education (keynote); Dayna Laur, educator, speaker and expert on classroom technology integration; and Dr. Arthur Benjamin, “mathemagician” and noted human calculator with over 10 million views of his TED talks. The conference will also feature a Technology Petting Zoo, where participants can familiarize themselves with popular technology for the classroom
VMI's affordable STEM conferences are known for their practical, hands-on workshops offering ideas and activities that educators can immediately bring back to the classroom. Participants qualify for CEUs. Forms will be available on-site or download here to have beforehand.

"Compared to other teacher workshops I have attended, I consider this one tops. The price was right, my level of learning was high, there was not a repeat of material from other educational conferences, and the sessions and workshops were varied enough to hold my interest throughout the entire sessions." ~2014 VMI STEM Conference Survey Response
