STEM in the City
April 16, 2016

Only 16 percent of American high school seniors are proficient in Math and interested in a STEM career. Even among students who do go on to pursue a college major in the STEM fields, only about half choose to work in a related career (U.S Dept. of Education 2015). Our goal for this year’s S.T.E.M. in the City: Bridging the Gap Conference is to demonstrate the important connection between academic skill building, creativity and innovative thinking that is found through S.T.E.M.

Conference sessions will focus on inspiring interest in STEM subjects to enable educators to begin or enhance existing STEM programming in their classroom or center in an effort to bridge the gap and provide a foundation for higher learning. In addition to offering tailored tracks for both early childhood and school age providers- this year’s conference will offer special keynote speakers, a call to action and raffle giveaways!
