Explore the power of S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics) as it applies to real-world connections, creativity through collaboration, and innovation through art and engineering.  This 1-day conference incorporates workshop-style sessions organized by grade bands and identified by STEAM strands, allowing you to personalize your conference experience. Discover innovative ways to make instructional connections that transform engaged students to empowered learners.

This year, we welcome Sylvia Libow Martinez as our keynote speaker. Sylvia is co-author of Invent to Learn: Making, Tinkering, and Engineering the Classroom, known around the world as the "bible of the classroom movement."

She is president of CMK Futures, creating books and professional development to help educators invent the future of learning.

Sylvia is also principal advisor to the Stanford University FabLearn Fellows, a research group of global educators sharing hands-on, minds-on projects and curriculum. She also led educational non-profits and headed product development for consumer software, video games, and educational games at several software publishing companies.

Sylvia started her career as an electrical engineer designing high frequency receiver systems and software for the GPS navigational satellite system. She holds a masters in educational technology and a bachelors in electrical engineering.
