Presentation proposals being accepted through March 31

Alfred State College is pleased to announce that it will once again host educators from all levels for the STEM Education Summer Institute. Presenters are invited to submit proposals for the conference from now until Sunday, March 31.

Taking place July 28-30, the institute is hosted by the New York State STEM Education Collaborative and provides a way for kindergarten-through-college-level educators to learn new techniques for engaging students of all ages in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers.

The 2019 program will include keynote speeches, plenary sessions, regular sessions, poster sessions, STEM trivia, and scheduled tours. This year’s theme is “STEM Connects ALL: Never Too Early – Never Too Late!” The full conference will provide 15 Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) certified professional development hours.

Serving as keynote speakers this year are State University of New York (SUNY) Chancellor Dr. Kristina M. Johnson, SUNY Fredonia Distinguished Teaching Professor in Mathematics Dr. Robert Rogers, and Clarkson University President Dr. Anthony Collins.

The event will feature more than 50 cutting-edge presentations related to STEM and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics) spread across eight individual sessions.

The cost of the full registration is $120, which includes all meals. Presenters, however, pay only half of this fee. In addition to local hotels, on-campus housing will be available for $55 per night.
