ITEEA in Dallas, Texas in 2017

The ITEEA's 79th Annual Conference will be held In Dallas, Texas! This year's theme will be "Engaging and Empowering Decision Makers Through Integrative STEM Education." 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.
