STEMwise 2015 will forge and enhance partnerships in the Northern Plains (SD, ND, MN, IA) between STEM professionals, educators, and community leaders. STEM education goes beyond increasing the number of students interested in science and math. It is a paradigm shift, a philosophy for teaching and learning – one that allows students to engage in dynamic learning communities through project-based learning.
 
In the workplace, STEM is trans-disciplinary, integrating several subjects; and STEM education should model this workforce reality. STEM partnerships allow students, teachers, and industry leaders to become more creative, innovative, collaborative, and improves their communication skills.
 
The STEM approach trains students to be problem solvers - a key skill for success in the 21st Century workplace, and will connect workforce and education for mutual benefit.
 
During the STEMwise forum, regional and national leaders in STEM education and industry will contribute to collaborative sessions and discussions on:
  • Industry-education partnerships
  • Dual credit and early college
  • Utilizing trans-disciplinary approaches
  • Project design and execution
  • Connecting innovation and transformative technologies with education
  • Maximizing use of regional STEM resources

Registration will be available in June 2015.
