Team Discount:  $1000/team of three ($1200 beginning September 1st)


During the three-day program participants attend pathways of concurrent sessions, each addressing a critical STEM education issue in-depth. This pathway approach reflects the idea that change affects the individual first, and that the individuals engaged in reform need to understand reform concepts from their level of expertise before they can effectively translate theory into practice. Participants choose one pathway to follow throughout their Next Steps experience.

During the one-day event participants engage in guided discussions, panel presentations, and small group strategic thinking aimed at deepening your understanding of STEM, and the system of support necessary to hold S, T, E, and M all together.
