PARTNER WITH US!

IgniteSTEM is a movement that empowers leaders in education to make the classroom of the future a reality by disrupting STEM learning environments with project based learning.  We see ourselves as the TED for education, and truly believe that it will be the catalyst to starting the next big movement in education. 

 

EACH of our conferences brings together an average of more than 120 hand-picked attendees (composed of mostly public high school teachers and principles, and NGO's), more than 50 thought leaders in EdTech, a cohort of 6-12 incredible speakers in education (see our Conferences pages), and a large team of more than 40 dedicated, talented Princeton undergraduate students passionate about disrupting current STEM education.  In addition to our conferences, we also coordinate in organizing our conferences with undergraduates and education departments from partnering universities, as well as maintain a strong, interactive online network of more than 650 active educators through our monthly newsletter.

NETWORK among several hundred of the nation's most passionate educators, talented students, and other pioneering corporations and organizations in EdTech.  Market your brand to our audience and partner with IgniteSTEM!

Our attendees get hungry! We would love for your company to support us in our mission by providing snacks for the trailblazing educators attending our conferences. In return, IgniteSTEM will promote you for branding on our website, schedules and pamphlets, and at our conferences. Hundreds of attendees will receive exposure to your brand.

WHY PARTNER WITH US?

CONNECT with leading educators and students in STEM across the globe and professionals from pioneering corporations and organizations in EdTech

 

WE HAVE MEASURABLE IMPACT: 

From our conferences and initiatives, several project based learning initiatives were put on in classrooms across the east and west coasts based on the material gained at our conferences over the past five years.  Our FREE, open source toolkits (previously termed Hack-In-A-Boxes) HackPacks have created specific step-by-step plans for educators to put on hackathons in their schools.  In these HackPacks, we feature various educational resources and corporate merchandise and resources for our attendees.  From feedback gained, our attendees found the conferences highly beneficial (calculated net promoter score = 61.6) and wanted to see an expansion of IgniteSTEMx conferences in other areas.

OUR RAPID GROWTH TRAJECTORY:

Last year, in addition to our inaugural IgniteSTEMxNYC and IgniteSTEMxPrinceton Conferences, we introduced a new, successful IgniteSTEMx Conference in Philadelphia, featuring over 50 attendees.  This year, we are expanding our vision of transforming education through design thinking and maker movements across the globe with IgniteSTEMx Conferences in the Bay Area (in partnership with the Stanford Graduate School of Education and d School of Design Thinking), as well as IgniteSTEM Global in Hong Kong and Athens. 

 

WE BRING A PASSIONATE STUDENT APPROACH:

We started IgniteSTEM because we felt that our own STEM learning experiences could be vastly improved by the implementation of project based learning.  As college students, we grapple with this issue from a different perspective and we are passionate about why we do what we do.

 

OUR MISSION ALIGNS WITH COMMON CORE:

We create project based learning lesson plans indexed to the common core standards that are integrated into our conference content.  This ensures that conference takeaways are directly transferred to the classroom in an actionable manner.  These lessons also raise awareness of top education technology products.

 

ENGAGE WITH OUR COMMUNITY:

We are building a community to collaborate on the implementation of education technology. 

This is the ideal platform for non-profits and ed tech companies to connect with early adopters in the teaching community.
