Global STEM: Your students who will work at Apple, Microsoft, Google, Novartis, GE – are we preparing them?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

STEM in schools and STEM in the professional world: there appears to be a disconnect. Has something changed in the STEM professional world that we are not addressing? Are we preparing our students for the real STEM world that is waiting for them in their future? 

Please, join us for a session to answer all the essential questions:

• What kind of technology are STEM professionals using and would like our students to be able use it as well? • What kind of skills and knowledge do STEM professionals want our students to have?
• What is the process of transferring innovative knowledge from the STEM professional world to STEM K-12?
