Set-Up for GK-12 Exposition

The poster session has been expanded to give projects more ways to showcase their activities: (1) poster(s) describing project work and graduate student STEM research, (2) a lesson to share, and/or 3) an example of how technology is used to support teaching and learning or to make project management more efficient and productive (e.g., online tracking/management of projects). Projects can choose to do one or all of these activities. Guidelines and a submission page coming soon

Strategies for Integrating Research into the Classroom
Five breakouts will be organized around STEM disciplines and/or grade levels. These sessions feature fellow-teacher pairs who will describe their strategies for integrating STEM research into K-12 schools. The discussions will have a practical focus, examining issues related to classroom management, student engagement, etc. (We invite you to apply to present a session or to nominate a fellow-teacher pair.)
