Featured Panel:  A Peek into Remote STEM Learning

Tuesday, July 28 • 12:20 PM - 1:00 PM

STRAND: Middle Level

Show Details

When schools closed in the spring of 2020, many educators felt as though they could only be reactive instead of proactive, with many pieces constantly in flux. As we consider the 2020–2021 school year, many questions remain. Join us as we process what remote learning looked like and provide a space to process what the upcoming year may look like (remote, hybrid, or in-person). Through a Q&A moderated by Denver Public Schools science team lead Renee Belisle, the panelists will describe their approaches to STEM learning in a remote environment, describing how teachers facilitate learning in traditionally hands-on subjects during the spring, as well as discussing ideas for the fall.

SPEAKERS:
Reneé Belisle Kelly (Amplify: Brooklyn, NY), Phil Kim (KIPP Schools: San Francisco, CA), Stephanie Hervey (Denver Public Schools: Denver, CO), Meghan Gardner (Guard Up's Guardian Adventures: Burlington, MA)

Featured Panel: Girls in STEM

Tuesday, July 28 • 1:58 PM - 2:38 PM

STRAND: Middle Level

Show Details

Studies continue to show a low representation of women in STEM careers, even though the number of jobs available grows year after year. A key component to combat this growing gap involves providing young women in middle school and high school with opportunities to connect with role models and mentors so that they can see themselves in these STEM careers. Moderated by Mellisa Blankenship, Kentucky Science Center programs director, this panel will explore how programs that inspire and reengage students with hands-on STEM concepts and career mentorship can help young women build confidence and encourage them to pursue STEM subjects academically, as well as elevate them through the STEM career pipeline.

SPEAKERS:
Mellisa Blankenship (Kentucky Science Center: Louisville, KY), Gabi O'Daniel (Mercy Academy: Louisville, KY), Mackenzie Bardin (Tates Creek Middle School: Lexington, KY), Patrick Burton (Mercy Academy), Stacey Hubbard (Westport Middle School: Louisville, KY), Kathleen Riley (Tates Creek Middle School: Lexington, KY)

Featured Panel: Student Panel Discussion—The Power of STEM Education

Wednesday, July 29 • 1:09 PM - 1:49 PM

STRAND: High School

Show Details

The need for STEM literacy—the ability to understand and apply concepts from science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in order to solve our nation’s most complex problems—is growing exponentially. The requirement for STEM literacy goes beyond the traditional STEM occupations of scientist, engineer, and mathematician. In addition, the United States and the Army have a growing need for highly qualified, STEM-literate technicians and skilled workers in advanced manufacturing, logistics, management, and other technology-driven fields. For more than 50 years, the U.S. Army has supported educational opportunities in STEM for youth and undergraduate students, as well as teachers.

Join a diverse panel of students from the U.S. Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP) as they describe their experiences with the AEOP programs, the importance of STEM in their lives and schools, how STEM will help them in their futures, and why they think STEM is important.

Introductions and Moderator: Matt Hartman, eCYBERMISSION Educational Content Manager, U.S. Army Educational Outreach Program, NSTA, Arlington, Va. (www.usaeop.com)
