Morgan James, NY
Math at Toms River High School South
Attending January’s IgniteSTEM at Princeton University was a game changer for me. Without the inspiration and ideas from IgniteSTEM I would not have felt empowered t created my first unit and feel confident to create more problem based learning units utilizing STEM in the future.
Lisa Driver, MI
STEM Teacher at Roxbury Public Schools
At the time of attending, I was just starting to build my school's STEM offering. [...] IgniteSTEM offered me the chance to think-tank with like-minded STEM leaders from around the metropolitan area to truely plan out what the next level of STEM offerings should look like.
SEE PAST CONFERENCES
Each of our conferences is unique as we change and iterate on our years of experience in running our series. Our events are structured as "mini-hackathons" and are as interactive as can be, as we believe that the true power of education relies on community and grassroots thinking. We try to exemplify the principles of design thinking and the maker movement in the core of each of our events. See some examples of past conferences below!
