      STEM Education Dinner Symposium for Illinois School Leaders

      On the evening of Thursday, October 24, the Illinois Science Teachers Association (ISTA), and the Chicago STEM Education Consortium (C-STEMEC) will host a special free Dinner Symposium for school and district administrators, policy leaders, and education reformers about STEM education. The event will feature engaging sessions on implementing the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, the new Next Generation Science Standards, and ways to organize schools and districts to best take advantage of state and national resources designed to support these initiatives. Registration is open to all school and district leaders in Illinois.

      Over $10,000 in Raffle Prizes: Our friends at Lab Aids, Delta and Frey will be on hand to give away over $10,000 in raffle prizes to anyone attending the event. Among the prizes will be a number of items and services tailored for educators, including complete SEPUP and FOSS modules, lab equipment, and more! You can also enter to win a tailored C-STEMEC PD session for your school or small district around the NGSS or Math for STEM Learning!

      Special Offer for ISTA’s IL Science Education Conference (ISEC13) Attendees: Science teachers who accompany an administrator, principal, or school board member from their school or district will receive a $50 credit on registration for the IL Science Education Conference, which starts that same evening and runs through the afternoon of Saturday, October 26. This offer is limited to one reimbursement per school for the first 100 teachers who register with their administrator, principal, or school board member. Both attendees must register online in advance. The credit will be issued at the end of this symposium as a $50 check reimbursement to whomever paid the science teachers’ ISEC13 conference registration.

      Access to ISEC13 Conference Exhibit Hall: Following dinner presentations and panel discussions, symposium attendees will receive access to the ISEC13 exhibit hall. The conference will showcase over 65 visiting science education organizations and vendors available to answer questions and provide information about their missions.
