Dream to STEAM 

 

Formerly known as iMATHination, the (STEAM)² Conference is an overnight professional development experience open to all educators and STEAM enthusiasts. The  (STEAM)² Conference is designed to spark imagination and inspire curiosity among educators of all backgrounds in order to reinvigorate their practice and better serve their students.

 

For the past eleven years, Northeastern Illinois University's Center for College Access and Success  has presented the conference as an opportunity for classroom teachers, informal educators, and industry professionals to come together and share best-practices around science, technology, engineering, art/architecture, and mathematics (STEAM) education.

 

The (STEAM)² Conference features a STEAM Maker Fair - a showcase of interactive "maker stations" demonstrating the latest educational technologies, STEAM teaching resources, and make-and-take activities. A host of Skill-Building Workshop sessions allow participants to engage in hands-on lessons that can be immediately applied to the classroom. 

 

To learn more about the (STEAM)² Conference, or if you are interested in developing future partnerships, please contact us using the form below.
