The 2019 Virginia Children's Engineering Convention will be held February 7-8, 2019 at the Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center, Roanoke, Virginia. In 2018, over 750 teachers, principals, and central office staff attended the convention. We invite you to join educators from across the Commonwealth of Virginia at this annual statewide staff development initiative.

Participants will experience STEM-based instructional practices that contribute to the development of technological awareness. Workshops will focus on experiences that enable children to:

  • Explore how people create, use and control technology.

  • Apply knowledge in mathematics, science, English, history, and social sciences in solving problems associated with design, engineering, and technology.

  • Use tools and materials to develop technological literacy and self-confidence.

 
The Virginia Children's Engineering Convention provides over 90 excellent professional development sessions and international keynote speakers for teachers to learn about STEM-based best practices in PreK-5 instruction, and strategies for implementing the Profile of a Virginia Graduate. http://www.cpe.vt.edu/vcec/
