VMI's 5th Annual STEM Education Conference October 4-5, 2016
The fifth annual VMI STEM Education Conference is titled 'Math: The Roots of STEM.' For 2016, we will focus on the 'M' for Math. The conference serves teachers of students in grades 3-8 and their administrators. Though our theme focuses on Math, the conference will offer many workshops covering the other STEM disciplines: Science, Technology, and Engineering.
VMI's affordable STEM conferences are known for their practical, hands-on workshops. Educators walk away with ideas and activities they can immediately bring back and use in the classroom. Conference participants qualify for Continuing Education Credits (CEUs). Forms will be available on-site or to download beforehand.
Testimonials from the 2015 conference survey:
“I really enjoyed my sessions and have come back to school ready to implement some of the ideas with plans to incorporate others later.”
“I was so inspired after attending these sessions. This was one of the best conferences I have ever attended.”
“I was extremely happy that I chose to attend. I was really impressed that I was able to see individual lessons and also how STEM can be a school-wide initiative.”
“This is the second STEM conference at VMI I have attended. It is a highlight of my school year because of the high standards in every way of the conference. I so appreciate the mood of integrity in the sessions, school, facilities and the organization of the conference.”
“The cost is very reasonable, and the learning is so much more than other science conferences I have attended.”
The VMI STEM Education Conference is about teachers helping teachers. The 2016 conference aims to help teachers show their students that math and science are fun.
