Educators who are charged with integrating engineering into K-12 instruction at your school or district are invited to attend a virtual conference for teachers, STEM coordinators, and administrators nationwide on how to put the “E” back into STEM instruction.

The interactive online conference, which takes place Nov. 17–18, 2015, is hosted by the National Center for Technological Literacy® (NCTL®) at the Museum of Science, Boston along with Secor Strategies. Museum president and NCTL founder Ioannis Miaoulis, Ph.D, will be the keynote speaker; staff from the award-winning Museum curriculum project Engineering is Elementary®, and engineering education experts from across the country will present live, interactive sessions that show you how to

  • navigate the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and make them work for you
  • use best practices for teaching K-12 engineering
  • advocate effectively for engineering curricula and professional development to parents, industry, and policymakers
  • win STEM grant funding for your engineering projects

There’s also a virtual exhibit hall where you can talk to exhibitors and download information. This interactive event is designed to bring educators all the benefits of attending a national conference  . . . without the hassle of travel. An "early bird" rate is offered for participants who register before Nov. 2, 2015.
