Registration is now open for the upcoming STEM Education Summer Institute at Alfred State College.

Taking place July 28-30, the conference is hosted by the New York State STEM Education Collaborative, and provides a way for kindergarten-through-college-level educators to learn new techniques for engaging students of all ages in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers.

Once again, the conference will feature an impressive list of keynote speakers. This year’s lineup includes State University of New York (SUNY) Chancellor Dr. Kristina M. Johnson, SUNY Fredonia Distinguished Teaching Professor in Mathematics Dr. Robert Rogers, and Clarkson University President Dr. Anthony Collins.

The 2019 program will include keynote speeches, plenary sessions, regular sessions, poster sessions, STEM trivia, and scheduled tours. This year’s theme is “STEM Connects ALL: Never Too Early – Never Too Late!” The full conference will provide 17 Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) certified professional development hours.

The event will feature up to 50 cutting-edge presentations related to STEM and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics) spread across eight individual sessions.

The cost of the full registration is $120, which includes all meals. Presenters, however, pay only half of this fee. In addition to local hotels, on-campus housing will be available for $55 per night.
