2013 TEEAP STEM Conference
Bigger, Better, Stronger! That’s was not the theme for the 61st Annual TEEAP Conference, but it certainly was our goal for this year's conference which took place on November 7-8, 2013. We would like to thank the members of the board and conference staff who working hard to make the conference the best that it can be. Please consider getting involved in next year's conference whether you can volunteer to work at the conference registration desk, be a special interest session presenter, or whatever part you can play. We need YOU to get involved and be a part of it. It’s never too early to start preparing for the conference and taking the steps needed to attend and/or to be a Special Interest Presenter began the day after this year's conference ended! If you have something worth presenting make sure to complete the Special Interest Session Presenter for the 2014 TEEAP STEM Conference. You will soon be able to fill out a 2014 Presenter Application by clicking here.
So what do we have for you now that the conferenece is over?

President’s Round Table
Be sure learn more about our new President, Dr. John Kallis' Resolutions and actions planned for the upcoming year. We will soon make these available on our About Us page.
Vendors & Exhibitors!
We are in the process of developing the 2013 TEEAP STEM Conference Vendor Guide which will contain contact information for all of the Vendor's and Exhibitors we had at the conference this year in case you want to reach with follow-up questions or for more information on what they had to offer!
General Session & Special Interest Session Materials
Yep, we are going to make those available too!

Dr. Mentzer is is an assistant professor in the College of Technology with a joint appointment in the College of Education at Purdue University and former PA TSA state president. He prepares Engineering/Technology teacher candidates for licensure and advises graduate students in Technology & Engineering Education. He was a former middle and high school technology educator in Montana prior to pursuing a doctoral degree.
Links to learn more about Tina Haskins who was our Friday presenter as well as links to some of the videos and information she provided will be available soon. Lisa is a Marine Technician with Rutgers University’s Coastal Ocean Observation Lab. Tina will be sharing her incredible experiences with her lab’s underwater robotic glider that made history by making the first transatlantic mission! I’ve had the opportunity to hear and see Tina’s presentation, and I can assure you this is something you want to see!
Lastly, special interest session presentations and materials are still being collected. You can access the 2013 TEEAP STEM archives on the Conference Page. Watch your email inbox for information as we make these materials available.

The theme ITEEA's 76th Annual Conference is Technological and Engineering Literacy Core Connections. We know that the pace of innovation will continue to be rapid and globally interconnected. The population of individuals who are involved with or affected by technology will be increasingly diverse and multidisciplinary. Social, cultural, political, and economic forces will continue to shape and affect the success of innovation. The presence of technology in our every day lives means that students need to make those Core Connections to be successful..
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.
