To: All Math and Science Educators and Administrators in the Greater Philadelphia Region

You are cordially invited to attend The 3rd Annual Greater Philadelphia Conference on Research in STEM Education Saturday, November 15, 2008 from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM in the Graduate Business Center at West Chester University.

The Honorable Joseph Sestak, U.S. Congress 7th district, and a member of the U.S. House Education and Labor Committee will be the morning keynote speaker. He will speak on his views of future federal education legislation.

Whether you are a math and science teacher, a college faculty member or an administrator, this conference showcases cutting edge, practice oriented research in math and science education that is directly relevant to you.

What is unique about this conference is the collaborative mix of presenters from K-12 schools to universities. The variety of formats include posters, presentations, forums and workshops.

Whether you are interested in the effectiveness of formative assessment on student achievement or how to incorporate new technologies, such as virtual tutoring in your school or classroom, or how to promote better prepared teachers at the preservice level, you will find something of interest for you.

Conference registration fees are paid by the National Science Foundation through The Math/Science Partnership of Greater Philadelphia. Parking is ample and free. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided, but space is limited to the first 200 attendees.
