Preparing for the 2014 STEM Forum & Expo

This web seminar took place on October 9, 2013 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. eastern daylight time. The presenters were the members of the 2014 STEM Forum & Expo steering committee. The program featured highlights of the upcoming STEM Forum, which will take place in New Orleans, Louisiana, May 14-17, 2014.

Eric Wilson, chair of the 2014 STEM Forum & Expo steering committee, began the presentation by describing how the STEM Forum & Expo is unique from other NSTA conferences. Honorary steering committee member Jean May-Brett talked about the STEM-related research and business activities taking place in New Orleans. The steering committee members then shared criteria for submitting a session proposal for one of the six conference strands-primary, upper elementary, middle school, high school, effective partnerships, and administrators. Participants had the opportunity to ask questions and get feedback on their initial ideas for sessions.

The winner of two complimentary registrations to the 2014 STEM Forum & Expo is Chérie Farrington, Founder/CEO of SportScience Fun in Reston, VA. Chérie and a colleague will both get to attend the event for free. See you in New Orleans!
