Stem educator symposium

*Consider SES CAN  The Brainstem Educator Symposium is a grassroots, 3-day staff development for educators- by educators.

The STEM Educator Symposium began in June of 2011 to help educators, schools and communities increase STEM opportunities in their location.  STEM education is about creating the confidence and competence students will need to be successful as STEM majors and workers.

The US Department of Labors identifies  the highest paying careers with 21 of 25 being STEM related. 

The expected outcome for participants is an increase in the quality of STEM instruction and increased STEM opportunities for ALL students.

"One of the most interactive, inspiring and educational experiences that will impact your thinking and teaching immediately!"

The STEM Institutes and Preston Middle School are hosting the fifth annual STEM Educator Symposium. 

Dates: June 14th to 16th, 2017.

Location: Preston Middle School, Fort Collins, Colorado

Would you like to spend time with a selective group of educators and business people who share your commitment to STEM / STEAM education? Are you looking for ways to get your students excited about high-level learning? Would you like to increase your students' academic confidence and competence? Would you like to learn with experts in problem-based teaching and learning? How would you enjoy beautiful Fort Collins, Colorado in June?


The STEM Educator Symposium is designed to enable STEM / STEAM Educators and STEM / STEAM Businesses to share practices that will result in a larger and more effective STEM workforce. Become an Agent of Change!

Why do so many students get excited about science and engineering but lose that interest?  Do students of color access STEM?  Why are girls not pursuing STEM studies? These are questions of interest to educators, business leaders and other decision-makers across the county.

The world has some big challenges!  Increasing the availability of clean energy, providing enough food and clean water for an increasing world population, designing for upcycle, space for humanity are all problems for which science, technology, engineering and math can help provide solutions.

Mary Kay Sommers, Past President of the National Association of Elementary Schools Principals says of the STEM Educator Symposium,
