The STEM Teacher Expo on Wednesday, October 17, 2018, from 12:00 – 4:00 PM is an opportunity for pre-service and in-service teachers to show-and-share a great STEM lesson or project with fellow educators. For the best chance to be considered for this unique, but limited opportunity, please complete this application by July 31, 2018. After this date, applications will continue to be accepted until all spaces are filled.
Here’s the Idea: You have a great preK-12 STEM design challenge or lesson plan that you would like to share with conference attendees. But, you’re not interested in doing a full conference presentation. The STEM Teacher Expo is your chance to share your idea in a more informal, but just as amazing way at STEMATHON. Instead of presenting during a scheduled session, you will set up a tabletop display that includes a trifold (like at a science fair), a pile of handouts of your STEM design challenge or lesson, and some materials or visuals to make your table display interactive. Conference attendees will visit displays that are set-up throughout the conference center, visit your table, check out and interact with your display, and take one of your handouts. Ta-da! That’s it. That’s how you do the STEM Teacher Expo. Even better, once your idea is accepted, you’ll receive a special discount code for $25 off the cost of your registration.
The Fine Print: You need to submit the application form and your idea needs to be accepted. You’ll receive an email to let you know either way. The earlier you apply, the better your chances are at acceptance. Although, quality will be the top priority! Once accepted, you’ll need to register for STEMATHON and use the discount code. Display set-up will take place from 9:00 – 11:30 AM on Wednesday morning.
