ITEEA’s 82nd Annual Conference in Baltimore, MD - March 11-14, 2020

 

Highlights Include:

  • Keynote Presentation by Freeman A. Hrabowski, President, University of Maryland, Baltimore Campus. Hrabowski will discuss, “The Culture of Science and Teaching.”
  • STEM4: Initiate Excellence Through Best Practice Panel. On Wednesday, March 10, listen, learn, and interact with leaders across all the STEM disciplines and see best practice in action. Last year’s “STEM4: The Power of Collaboration for Change” program provided an exciting platform and launching point for this year’s special panel session on using the STEM4 principles and now sharing STEM best practice at the elementary, middle, and high school grades. This session will be followed by a sponsored reception.
  • Keynote Presentation by Jeanette J. Epps, NASA Astronaut. Epps will speak about her career “From Engineer to Astronaut.” 
  • Administrator I-STEM Education Professional Development Strand. Bring your Administrator at no additional cost (refundable registration). A special strand of presentations designed for Administrators will be offered to build understanding and support for your program, including a special session by Michael Matthew, ACTE Government Relations Manager.
  • The ITEEA STEM Showcase—Highlighting Best Practices Through Integrative STEM Education! The ever-popular ITEEA’s STEM Showcase is back with over 100 educators sharing ideas, techniques, and best practices related to learning activities, marketing materials, career guidance, facility design, program design, assessment methods, equity, and classroom and laboratory management techniques. Attendees are invited to join ITEEA for our Celebration Reception immediately following the STEM Showcase.
  • Inaugural Presentation of the REACH Challenge Awards. See the presentation of the first ever REACH Challenge Awards, which will go to teams that use their STEM skills to REACH a member of their community who has a challenge to overcome—and design a solution to help!
  • ITEEA Dream Ride…Go Baby Go Style. Go Baby Go! provides mobility (and play!) to very young children in the form of adapted toy ride-on cars. Over the course of the conference, faculty and students will be adapting several motorized ride-on cars near the Exhibit Floor. Conference attendees are encouraged to stop by to see the program in action. On Friday the cars will be donated to children with special needs from the area, who will “test drive” their new rides before taking them home.
  • Preconference Workshops. On Wednesday March 11, 2020, ITEEA offers half-day professional learning workshops on a variety of topics including: a Design Thinking Crash Course, Literacy Through the Lens of Technology, Implementing Coding and Microcontrollers Through Hands-On STEM Applications and Implementing a STEM Program in Elementary School.
  • There’s a Buzz About Baltimore…that makes people who visit fall in love with its vibe. With the world-famous Inner Harbor, renowned museums and attractions, award-winning restaurants, a local music scene, and hip and historic neighborhoods, get ready to explore a truly authentic American city.
