2016 TEEAP STEM Conference
The 2016 TEEAP STEM Conference will be held on November 10-12, 2016 this year. You will note that this is a week later than we traditionally have held the conference. This year's conference will be a little different also in that we will be holding it at a new location, the Lancaster-Lebanon IU 13. Finally, you will see some changes to our schedule of events over the three day conference which includes a lunch for all attendees on both days, an awards luncheon on Friday replacing our Awards Banquet that previously took place Friday night, and hands-on day at Millersville University that you will be able to Pre-register for separately from the Thursday and Friday sessions at the Intermediate Unit location.

2016 TechFest Application
Another really great way to be involved in the conference is to reserve a table in our always popular Friday TechFest. It is a great way to show off something you do in a less formal setting than a special interest session, or you can use this an an opportunity to expand upon who you can reach by doing both!

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.
