Technology and Integrated Project Based Learning
October 6-7, 2015
All systems are 'GO' for this year's STEM conference. The worst of Joaquin is behind us for our region and we have sunny skies now through Friday and temps reaching near or in the 70s!
Due to last week's rain, however, there will be no parking on the VMI Post Parade Grounds. Parking attendants will direct traffic first to the VMI Marshall Hall parking lot, then to parallel/nose-in spots around the parade grounds and finally to Jordan's Point where a shuttle will run guests from that lot to Marshall Hall. WE KINDLY ASK THAT PARTICIPANTS CARPOOL WHENEVER POSSIBLE.
**STEM REGISTRATION IS NOW FULL**
Please add your name to our waiting list: email@example.com
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
