The second annual STEM innovation Summit, hosted by the Einstein Project, sponsored in-part by Carolina Biological, is taking place at UW-Green Bay’s Weidner Center on Thursday, November 8th from 8am to 4pm.
The day is scheduled with inspiring, informational and conversational presentations with featured speakers and panel discussions; followed by audience question/answer period. Guest speakers include, Dr. Amy D’Amico, lead of the STEM Diversity Initiative at the Smithsonian Science Education Center, along with Michelle Schuler, Manager Tech-Spark Wisconsin, and Adrienne Hartman, President Women In Technology, who will be talking about computer science career pathways. Kevin Anderson, Wisconsin’s State Science Coordinator from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, will be facilitating the panel discussions that address closing the achievement gap among diverse populations in STEM education and the critical nature of access for all students to high-quality STEM education – supporting a STEM-literate society and strong workforce.
This summit is not only an opportunity for education leaders to engage in promoting excellent K-12 STEM initiatives, but also a chance to network and learn about new opportunities.
