A Conference for Professional Development, Enrichment, Networking, and Fun for Commonwealth K-12 STEM Educators and Administrators

Mark Your Calendars for October 11-12, 2021

ANNOUNCEMENT: STEM 2020 Cancelled, but... 

Although we won't be holding the VMI STEM Education conference in person this year, rest assured that we remain committed to our Commonwealth’s inspiring STEM teachers and delivering top-notch motivational and educational programming. To that end, we are reaching back to some of the best keynote speaker presentations from past conferences to inspire you in the coming academic year.


We will curate short highlight reels from our past keynote speeches and share them with you for easy consumption on this website. Each short will also have a link to the full-length version for you to view when you need some inspiration and motivation.

Email notifications to our STEM contact list will go out this fall. If you aren't on our list and would like to be included, please send an email to with that request.

Thank you, educators, for all that you do. We look forward to seeing you back at VMI in person in 2021!


What have past attendees said about VMI's STEM Education Conference?

“I like the informal opportunities to talk with people during meals about the sessions, the proximity of the sessions to the main building, the activity during the sessions and the Q&A during presentations.” ~ Paula White
“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 through the entire sessions.” ~ Survey Respondent
“Very worthwhile conference. This is our 2nd year sending a team of teachers, and they all returned with activities and ideas to integrate into science, math and ELA instruction. Thanks!” ~ Survey Respondent
