STEM Conference offers training for K-12 educators

Event shifts to online format and focuses on tips for teaching STEM virtually

STEM Conference 2020, a training event for regional K-12 science, technology, math and engineering teachers, has been rescheduled from September to Nov. 11 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The University of Cincinnati’s College of Engineering and Applied Science and Northern Kentucky University, with sponsorship from STEMucation Academy, have partnered to host the online event. Using input from potential attendees, the theme for the conference is “STEM, STEAM, or STREAM, Adapting to the Virtual Environment.”

The session topics, now all virtual because of the pandemic, will include interactive workshops; STEM, STEAM, STREAM in the virtual environment; tools for virtual teaching; and interactive forums for problem-solving.

The conference day begins at 9 a.m. and will conclude at 2:30 p.m. An opening welcome and presentation of teacher awards will kick-off the event. In addition to four concurrent sessions, a showcase of regional STEM education resources will have virtual booths attendees can visit, pick up information regarding the organization, attend meet-ups, and bid on raffle items. 

The cost is $50 if you register by Aug. 1 and $55 after Aug. 1 and includes up to 6 professional development contact hours. Additional details can be found on the registration page. 

STEM Conference 2020 promotes UC’s strategic direction, Next Lives Here, by making an urban impact in education locally and supporting Cincinnati Public Schools and other public school districts in the Greater Cincinnati area.
