STEM Best Practices Conference
“You Get What You Play For”
2021 STEM Best Practices Conference - June 21, 2021
The STEM Best Practices Conference is an opportunity to learn about STEM Best Practices from Utah experts and leaders in our K-12 STEM community. The conference will highlight projects from across the state where communities are experiencing success with STEM learning, announce new opportunities for engaging with the STEM Action Center and provide an opportunity for networking to form new partnerships with other STEM stakeholders. Six re-licensure points are available for full-day attendees.
This year’s focus is about play, failure, and iteration. Play has proven to be a way to make learning more accessible and actionable. Play is also where we learn to fail in a safe and fun environment while also giving us the opportunity to think critically, collaborate, and iterate. The 2021 STEM Best Practices Conference will help guide you through failure and inspire you to embark on the iterative process, all while using play as an essential foundation.
