Invest in teachers as learners and professionals in order to impact our students.

BACKGROUND: VMI’s affordable STEM conferences provide practical, hands-on workshops offering ideas and activities that educators can immediately bring back to the classroom.

The 2014, 2015 and 2016 conferences were sold out; attendance is capped at 300 to ensure our ability to provide small, hands-on workshops.  Participating teachers and administrators are from across the state of Virginia. We focus on grades 3 – 8, as those educators have the opportunity to instill students with a confidence in their math abilities and an appreciation for science that can lead to their pursuit of STEM classes in high school and in college majors.

By giving teachers the tools and knowledge they need to encourage their students in STEM, this conference leverages direct contact with 300 teachers into impacting approximately 6,000 students (average of 20 students per class).


We are looking for innovative educational exhibits and resources to share with teachers. There are a limited number of booth spaces available at $500 each.


Would your company like to provide teachers with the tools they need to encourage students to embrace science, technology, engineering, and math as a conference sponsor? It is our hope that Virginia-based companies will recognize the impact of this conference on teachers in the Commonwealth, and help Virginia Military Institute help underwrite the cost of this conference to keep registration fees low. In effect, you would be helping to provide partial scholarships to each teacher.

We’d like to work with your company to come up with an interactive sponsorship opportunity. Please contact MAJ Kim Connolly connollykv@vmi.edu or 540-464-7740 for information on exhibit booths or sponsorship opportunities.
