Thank you to everyone who attended the 2013 TEEAP Conference! We encourage you to consider presenting at next year's conference on November 6th and 7th, 2014. Visit our Conference page for some information concerning the 2013 Conference as well as the form to sign up to present at next year's conference. Information for the 2014 Conference will be available during July of 2014.
The theme ITEEA's 77th Annual Conference is Building Technology and Engineering STEM Partnerships. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (sTEm) is very much a “buzzword” on today’s educational landscape. Every teacher, school, district, and state has its own version of what sTEm means as well as how to help students engage in experiences that will prepare them for the 21st Century. Technology and Engineering is the foundation for making these experiences meaningful through integrative sTEm education. sTEm implementation embodies the spirit of partnerships—working collaboratively to reach common goals.
This conference is an opportunity to recognize and honor the accomplishments of our colleagues and best-practice programs. Additionally, it provides professional development and networking opportunities, as well as opportunity to renew old friendships and create new friendships. For more information, click here.
