MnSPE: Transcending Boundaries: Connecting School, Career, and Community Through STEM Conference
December 3, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 3:30 pm$80
Please join SciMathMN and The Works Museum at Transcending Boundaries: Connecting School, Career and Communities Through STEM Tuesday, December 3rd at the University of Minnesota Continuing Education and Conference Center in St. Paul. There you will connect with Minnesota’s STEM educators, nonprofit providers, and business representatives to consider the role of STEM education in providing inclusive environments, adequate resources, and career-connected learning that prepare the next generation for the future.
Transcending boundaries will look at creating partnerships that enrich Minnesota’s STEM learning ecosystem by connecting in, out, and after-school time; formal and informal settings; and educational and workplace environments. The conference will also explore transcending boundaries between disciplines by engaging youth in authentic, human-centered learning that blends knowledge and practices from STEM subjects with arts, humanities, and other areas—and ensures that STEM learning is accessible and relevant for all.
