Description

Join educators, students, innovators and leaders from business and government at Scaling STEM: Transforming Education Matters. Secondary school developers, educators and students from North Carolina and across the nation will share strategies to implement STEM practices and demonstrate STEM impacts in the community.

A globally competitive, knowledge-based economy is a fact of life for students—now and for the foreseeable future—and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are critical drivers in that economy. To reduce a potentially crippling workforce knowledge gap and to prepare more students—especially those who traditionally have been underrepresented – for STEM careers, we must make these disciplines accessible and relevant and fundamentally change approaches to educating our children.

Featured Speakers:

  • June St. Clair Atkinson, North Carolina State Superintendent of Public Instruction
  • Jan Morrison, President, Teaching Institute for Excellence in STEM
  • Tony Wagner, Author and Education Innovation Fellow, Harvard University
