Themes and Strands: The theme for this year's STEM Conference is Back to Basics. There are four strands this year to support our theme. They are listed below.  

Strand 1: Hands-On Workshops: (2-3 Hours in Length)

Technology and Engineering Education has a history of developing hands-on skills and abilities in students. With this year's conference located at Millersville University, TEEAP has the unique opportunity to offer lab-based workshops on a variety of skills and applications. Sessions in this strand should provide attendees with hands-on training.

Strand 2: Teaching Strategies (45 Minutes in Length)

The study of technology and engineering can occur using a variety of pedagogical strategies. Approaches such as cross-curricular and co-curricular programs (STEM, STEAM, STREAM), Problem-Based Learning (PBL), inquiry-based learning, and experiential learning can significantly affect what is taught and how it is learned. Sessions in this strand should showcase strategies for successfully building a learning environment to enable the development of technological and engineering literacy in students.

Strand 3: Traditional Contexts (45 Minutes in Length)

The historical foundation of Technology and Engineering Education is built around Material Conversion and Processing, Transportation and Logistics, Energy and Power, Information and Communication, and the Built Environment. Sessions in this strand should highlight innovative use of resources, dynamic curriculum approaches, and engaging student activities within these traditional contexts found within ITEEA Standards for Technological and Engineering Literacy (STEL).

Strand 4: The Path Ahead (45 Minutes in Length)

As we embrace the basics of Technology and Engineering Education, we also must recognize the need to be future-focused. Recently, Medical and Health-Related Technologies, Agricultural and Biological Technologies, and Computation, Automation, Artificial Intelligence, and Robotics have also been named within the STEL contexts. Sessions in this strand should provide examples of how programs across the state apply new and innovative ideas to encourage technological and engineering literacy within any of the 8 STEL contexts.
