IGNITE EDUCATION ACROSS THE WORLD
Empowering K-12 Educators with the skills, resources, and network they need to implement project based learning (PBL) in public schools around the world
WHO ARE WE?
Based at Princeton University, we are a student-run, non-profit organization backed by Google Education and Wolfram. We host a series of free conferences annually for thought leaders in education throughout the world.
We currently provide 3 conference locations with each hosting about
120 hand-picked passionate attendees.
WHY ATTEND OUR CONFERENCES
When the IgniteSTEM conference finishes, you will leave with tangible deliverables that will provide every resource necessary to launch your own successful hackathon to change education forever. Take an in-depth look at igniteSTEM's global importance HERE.
Starting your own hackathon can be daunting. You will leave IgniteSTEM with a bag that contains tools for you to take initiative, which includes a mobile app, website, example projects, and strategies necessary to host successful hackathons.
IgniteSTEM's mentors and team members have hosted successful hackathons and know exactly how to create outstanding hackathons, regardless of your situation. You will be assigned a personal mentor to help you build the hackathon that fits your specific needs.
Hacking is all about the community. You will become a member of hack clubs across the world that you can count on for support, and you will be able to grow the club in your area.
