STEM is CTE
Saturday, December 1, 12:15-5:15 p.m.
Back by popular demand, this event addresses crucial diversity, equity and access issues to STEM fields via CTE programs, which encourage students and especially women to explore high-paying, high-demand STEM careers. CTE classrooms offer hands-on learning environments that bring science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to life, apply core academics to real-world situations and provide creative problem-solving skills to address our nation’s most pressing issues. Together, STEM and CTE expand opportunities for youth to engage in some of the most exciting realms of discovery and technological innovation.

The Martians in Your Classroom
The first person to step foot on the red planet has already been born and could be a student in a classroom, a kid in your neighborhood or a child in your own home. We are preparing the next generation for jobs that do not exist and for career paths that may not be in our communities, our countries or even on our planet. The careers of the future are out of this world — literally! Join Rachael Mann on a journey to explore where we have been, what’s on the horizon and what this means for us as educators. Regardless of your job title, subject area or grade level, we are here for one reason: to equip students for their future. It takes all of us to make this work happen, and it starts with STEM and CTE!
