The 2017 Global Student Conference "STEM + Entrepreneurship" provides an international forum for the presentation, discussion and sharing by students. This conference, organized and presented by students in grades 6-12 and open to all to attend, is committed to:
Fostering a better understanding of how STEM and entrepreneurship engage students, teachers, and administrators in a conversation about learning.
Assisting teachers and administrators in understanding how STEM and entrepreneurship impact learning both in and out of the classroom.
Strengthening the relationship between students, teachers, and administrators about STEM + entrepreneurship in the curriculum.
This year's conference strands will include:
Making, Design and 3d Printing
STEM Projects and Collaborations
Students and Social Media
STEM and Social Justice
There is no cost to attend. Instructions and the schedule of sessions will be here.
The call for proposals for the conference opens on Monday, January 23rd, 2017. Presenters can submit proposals for general sessions focused on one of the strands listed above. While the final deadline for submissions is Saturday, February 25th, 2016, presenters will be notified of acceptance on a rolling basis. There is a motivation for early submission and acceptance, as presenters schedule their own presentation times as a part of the process and the options become more limited as time goes on.
As a conference that is focused on being participatory, we encourage everyone to submit a proposal, including those who are new to presenting.
