NHSTE announces the spring Tech Teachers Integrating Technology workshop for the 2016-17 school year, STEAM Ahead!.  STEM, STEAM, or STREAM ~ no matter what you call it, the ability to apply robust content from the areas of Science, Reading, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics to solve real world problems defines one of the core competencies of the successful 21st century learner.  Join us for a day of exciting presentations from teachers and exhibitors who are integrating STEM concepts, hands-on learning, and authentic challenges to engage and excite students while mastering content and developing problem-identifying and problem-solving skills.

We have an exciting collection of exhibitors and teachers ready to share their information and expertise with you.  Join us for the day and come back with a bundle of ideas.
Approximately 16 45-minute sessions are planned  and each participant has the opportunity to attend up to four sessions.  Again this year, we are also including the Technology Playground, sponsored by our exhibitors, where you can go and test drive these exciting resources for yourself.
As in the past, your registration includes a buffet lunch and light refreshments in both the morning and afternoon.  The day ends with your feedback and comments via the evaluation process and the drawing of raffle prizes donated by our exhibitors.
