Math and Science Concepts in Action
October 7 & 8, 2014
This third VMI STEM Education Conference will explore engineering principles and pedagogical methods and strategies with the goal of incorporating engineering concepts and projects into the teaching of math and science. It is specifically designed for classroom, math and science teachers of grades three through eight, as well as the administrators who support them.
All attendees will have the opportunity to participate in workshops and sessions with VMI faculty and teachers from across the commonwealth, as well as take part in small group discussions on best practices and sign-up to deliver five-minute “open-mic” speed presentations.
Through this diverse, dynamic schedule, attendees will gain a better understanding of engineering, including research and careers for current and next generations, lesson plans that work well in the classroom, and the broader learning environment including engineering programs that engage students beyond the classroom. Participants will be able to earn continuing education credits.
We are very excited that attendance to this year's conference is quite robust so we would like to encourage everyone to carpool wherever and whenever possible. We have arranged on-post, reserved parking for conference participants and will have parking attendants each morning available to guide traffic.
