ITEEA's STEM Showcase: Where Great Ideas Come Together!

Meet a 2020 Showcase Presenter...

 

Meet Joann Blumenfeld

Joann is an award-winning Science and Special Education Teacher at Broughton High School in North Carolina, as well as the Program Director of Catalyst, which gives high school students with disabilities the hands-on learning and experiences they need to thrive in STEM fields.

On March 12, 2020 in Baltimore, Joann will be sharing a Showcase titled, "Creating Opportunities in STEM for Students with Disabilities." The program's major goal is to prepare high school students with disabilities to enter post secondary degree programs in STEM fields. Catalyst provides hands-on STEM experiences, labs, research opportunities, internships, soft skills, field trips and much more.

"I wanted to participate in the STEM Showcase because across the US, about 12-15% of students have disabilities in K-12 public schools, and I want to share our program so others can duplicate or make their own, to help this very talented segment of our student population, who are sometimes overlooked or whose needs are not being met so they can be successful in STEM and STEM Careers. 

I chose to present at the ITEEA STEM Showcase to reach fellow educators at an event that will highlight best practices and at this conference, which is focusing on Literacy For All. It's the perfect venue to share this award-winning program that provides support and experiences for students with disabilities, so all learners can be successful in STEM, and so others can do the same for their students. Many of our most famous scientists and engineers had disabilities from Einstein to Edison. It is important we make STEM and inclusive places so all learners succeed, not only the individual will benefit but the progress of STEM will too!" 

 

You can still apply to be part of the STEM Showcase to share YOUR great ideas, but the deadline is quickly approaching on October 1.
