You are invited to share your STEM idea, technique, or best practice related to learning activities, marketing materials, career guidance, facility design, program design, assessment methods, equity, or classroom and laboratory management techniques.

The ITEEA STEM Showcase is an exhibition of best practices in Integrative STEM Education. Showcasers include, but are not limited to, K-12 teachers, teacher educators, administrators, undergraduate and graduate students, and informal educators. The Showcase provides a forum to feature an idea, technique, or best practice related to learning activities, marketing material, career guidance, facility design, program design, assessment methods, equity, or classroom and laboratory management techniques. Showcasers are asked to illustrate a single element of technology and engineering teaching and/or Integrative STEM Education that they feel they have exemplified. Plan now to be a part of this unique and high-profile event.


2. APPLY TO PRESENT A SPECIAL INTEREST SESSION
(APPLICATIONS ARE CLOSED FOR 2020)

Theme: Technological and Engineering Literacy for ALL

The 2019 conference theme focuses on providing access and equity for all PreK-12 students to become technologically and engineering literate through high-quality STEM instruction is imperative. Students who study technology and engineering through an integrative STEM education approach learn about the technological world that inventors, engineers, and other innovators have created. The goal is to produce students with a more conceptual understanding of technology and engineering and its place in society. These students must conceptualize and evaluate new technologies that they may have never before seen. By “doing and making,” children become “makers” for the future.

Strand 1: Innovative strategies to support Technological and Engineering Literacy for All

Strand 2: Providing or making connections to bridge the divide between Integrative STEM Education and STEM career opportunities

Strand 3: Connecting people, facilities, and resources to find solutions to the challenges facing our profession

Strand 4: Attracting underrepresented populations to I-STEM education
