To mark the start of a new era in helping educators promote excellence in K-12 STEM initiatives, the Einstein Proejct hosted a free, informational STEM Innovation Summit on Thursday, November 16, 2017 at the UWGB Weidner Center in Green Bay. The event featured guest speakers from The Smithsonian Science Center, the Department of Public Instruction, as well as panel discussions with experts in the field of Makerspaces and curriculum implementation of Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Information was shared about the current status of Wisconsin’s science standards and how the Smithsonian Science Center is redesigning its curriculum from the ground up to meet the rigorous performance expectations of NGSS.
We had over 150 guests in attendance throughout the day; including administrators, educators and other STEM education stakeholders who were invited to participate in this opportunity.
This first-annual summit has started us on a course to help you remain on the cutting edge in STEM education.
After Generating STEAM this year, the Einstein Project looks forward to moving Full STEAM Ahead with the 2018 STEM Innovation Summit! More details to come.
