STEM in the City: STEM-Con Engaging Imagination & Creativity

Professional Development Dimensions (PD Dimensions), a division of Montgomery Early Learning Centers, provides technical assistance and professional development to public and private early childhood and after-school programs in the Greater Philadelphia region. For the past 30 years, we have worked to improve the quality of the programs we serve by providing tools, systems, resources and strategies that are grounded in best practices, research and national standards.

Professional Development Dimensions is hosting its sixth annual S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Conference on Saturday, December 2, 2017 at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, 100 E. Wynnewood Road, Wynnewood.

“STEM in the City: STEM-Con: Engaging Imagination and Creativity” is the theme. Superheroes are all the rage. It’s time for some superhero fun! As an educator and STEM professional this is your call to action. We encourage you to meet this challenge and join our cause as a Superhero STEM Presenter. Support out-of-school- time and early childhood staff in engaging youth in STEM learning.

Our challenge must be to increase engagement, build excitement and empower our ECE, school-age and out-of-school time professionals to engage students, spark their imagination and help them understand the importance Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) plays in their daily lives.

Workshop sessions should focus on superhero themed learning that builds on youth interests and provides strategies for hands-on-activities that link to STEM learning. Don’t miss this great opportunity to put on your “Superhero STEM Cape”! Please complete the Presenter Registration Form, include a Proposal, Professional Bio and Photograph no later than September 8, 2017. Contact Donna or Esther (see below) for the Form.

Each session must be 2 hours in length. Proposals should be emailed (preferred) to Donna Smith at dsmith@melc.org or Esther Moore at emoore@melc.org. The proposal may also be faxed to (610) 617-3550. If you have questions, please feel free to contact our Conference Coordinators, Donna Smith or Esther Moore at (610) 617-4550 opt. 4. Presenters will be notified no later than September 15, 2017 of the status of their proposal.

An honorarium of $200 per workshop is being offered along with 1 complimentary conference registration, and lunch on the day of the conference. Presenters are responsible for all handouts and materials. We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Leslie A. Roesler
