The STEM Forum & Expo, hosted by NSTA, provides resources for educators and organizations seeking to learn more about STEM, outreach, partnerships, schools, and curricula.

The event has been a powerful chance the state leaders that make up our network to connect and share ideas with educators from across the country.

Tired of winter? We’ve got good news for you. This conference will be held at Moscone Center West in San Francisco from July 24–26, 2019. Register for the conference here.

We’re partnering with the National Science Teachers Association again. From microcredentials for teachers to the new federal STEM plan, we’ve got topics to help you make the most of STEM education.

We would love to see you at the STEM forum! Below are the titles and times of the presentations we’ve gathered to represent STEMx.
