The Georgia Department of Education in sponsorship with the Career, Technical and Agricultural Education Resource Network is hosting The Georgia STEM Forum in Athens, Ga at The Classic Center October 20-21, 2014.
The STEM Forum is the first in the state to bring K-12 CTAE, math, and science teachers together under the same roof for an educational conference. If schools send teams of CTAE, math, and science teachers then local CTAE funds can be used to fund their attendance.
The Forum will address five strands to assist schools with developing powerful STEM curricula:
> Increasing participation of women and minorities in STEM
> STEM Project, Problem, or Place-Based Education
> Integrated STEM instruction
> Increasing rigor and relevance in STEM
> Business/Community/Post-Secondary Partnerships
> Effective STEM technology integration
