2018 TEEAP STEM Conference

Planning for the Fall STEM conference is in full swing. The TEEAP conference planning committee is working hard with the team from IU 13 to create the ultimate conference experience. 


The theme for the Fall conference is Blazing Trails to STEM Careers and will feature a new conference layout. Some of the highlights of the new format include:

  • STEM Trade Show -  On Thursday, October 18, a STEM Trade Show will be included as part of the conference. Companies and organizations from all STEM areas will share their products and services with attendees. This is a slight change to the past TEEAP vendor show but we guarantee you won't want to miss this day!

  • STEM Leadership Academy - Administrators attending STEMathon will have the opportunity to participate in a STEM Leadership Academy presented by IU13. Participants who register for this additional option at STEMATHON will attend designated sessions at the STEM Conference, receive a book to read, and complete job-embedded assignments throughout the 2018-19 school year.

  • STEM Research Poster Session - On Friday, October 19, a STEM Research Poster Session will be included as part of the conference. This new session will include Graduate Students and University Professors will share their recent research with attendees. Please stay tuned for more information.
