UC College of Engineering and Applied Sciences is bringing local teachers and UC faculty together for a day of learning and collaboration at TUC. Registration closes May 6, 2016.

STEM Conference May 11 2016

The College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Cincinnati will host the fourth annual STEM Conference ("Driving Change through STEM: Models, Pedagogy and Collaboration") for local area K-12 STEM teachers and administrators from public and private schools from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 11, at Tangeman University Center. Conference attendees will be exposed to presentations on trending STEM topics and experience hands-on learning with useful information and ready-to-learn projects that can be incorporated into the classroom. Attendance includes contact hours for continuing education.

According to last year’s attendees, completing projects at the conference and talking about how to implement them in the classroom provided valuable peer-to-peer interaction. Instructors who used challenge-based learning and engineering design processes were able to interact and learn from each other’s experiences. In the course of one day all levels of teachers walked away inspired with more ideas to incorporate into their teaching.

Cost to attend is $30 and registration closes May 6th. To register visit the STEM Conference website (http://ceas.uc.edu/special_programs/ceems/stem-conference-2016.html).
This conference is made possible by CEEMS, which is funded by the National Science Foundation, grant #1102990.
