2017 TEEAP STEM Conference
The 2017 TEEAP STEM Conference will be held at the Lancaster location of the Lancaster-Lebanon IU 13 from October 26th-27th, 2017.
Based on your feedback, we are working to provide you with a great conference experience. This year’s conference is being built around a wide range of informative special interest sessions, interesting educational opportunities, and activities designed to promote the sharing of ideas and information.
Exhibitors will be located around the perimeter of the main conference meeting room where we will be featuring an Exhibitor Expo on Thursday and a TECHfest on Friday. In this meeting space, we will also be hosting lunch on Thursday and the Awards Luncheon on Friday along with presentations by keynote speakers.
Lunches will only be provided to those who pre-register for the conference in order to ensure we have an accurate lunch count. If you register on-site, meals can be purchased at the IU cafeteria.
Along with the larger exhibitor displays in the main meeting room, information tables will be available along the main hallway for organizations and vendors wishing to share information about their products and services.

2017 TechFest Application
Another great way to be involved in the conference is to reserve a table at the TECHfest on Friday and share one or more of your classroom activities or best practices with your peers. The TECHfest is a less formal setting than a special interest session and provides an excellent time to talk with other teachers, network, and share ideas that you feel have been successful in your classrooms.

The ITEEA's 80th Annual Conference will be held In Atlanta, Georgia! This year's theme will be "Building Bridges Within The STEM Community and Beyond." 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. Building bridges helps everyone to understand the important role technology and engineering contributes to STEM education.
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.
