Registration is open for the second annual STEM Summit (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math): Emerging & Innovative Trends for Tomorrow’s Classroom on Thursday, February 9th, and Friday, February 10th, 2012. For our K-12 educators, clock hours will be offered.
About the STEM Summit: This two-day Summit will introduce you to K-20 best practices in education focusing on innovative teaching and learning in STEM. As attendees, you will be examining curriculum for incorporation of best practices in STEM teaching and learning.
This free event includes lunch and snacks, materials, and fun giveaways (including five copies of the lauded Learning and Teaching Early Math: The Learning Trajectories Approach, a Cannon EOS RebelT3 digital camera – over $500 value, a Texas Instruments graphing calculator – over $100 value, and more…)
- Your educational colleagues will be sharing their strategies for incorporating STEM in the classroom
- Industry professionals from allied health, aerospace, construction, information and computing technology, and manufacturing will highlight emerging technology and workforce trends.
The STEM Summit is proud to announce the keynote for the second Summit is Dr. Bradley Layton. Dr. Layton is an Assistant Professor for the Department of Applied Computing and Electronics at The University of Montana College of Technology. The presentation will concentrate on Energy Technology Education in Efficiency To Engender Energy Independence: Science & Math Lay the Foundation for the Next Generation of Energy Technology Leaders.
The curriculum development this year will be facilitated by Dr. Michele Royer. Expect an innovative practicum developed by Dr. Royer which will allow you to take a project and adapt it using STEM principles to your classroom.
In a fun hands-on environment of multi-disciplinary faculty teams, develop engaging student STEM projects in the context of aerospace, education, energy, and Information and Computing Technology industries using innovative collaborative teaching/learning processes. Through the guided activity you will:
- Create multi-disciplinary student projects that can be applied to your classroom or to an online environment
- Explore innovative processes for student collaboration across programs and institutions, and for industry engagement in student learning experiences
- Share perspectives from different disciplines and different education levels through the lens of a collaborative project
- Discuss barriers and possible solutions to implementing truly multidisciplinary student experiences to meet the needs of growth industries and emerging technologies
