Leaders of Delaware’s STEM Council, Delaware Foundation for Science and Mathematics Education, Delaware Mathematics Coalition, and Forum for the Advancement of Minorities in Engineering (FAME) are committed to building structures and systems that eliminate barriers to success in mathematics. The October 15th DE STEM Equity Conference engages PK20 educators, policy makers, and business leaders in meaningful learning experiences that are designed to leverage their capacity as agents of change.
Sessions leaders include highly respected local and national STEM leaders who will engage participants in conversations and learning focused on positively influencing and impacting classroom and systems level equity challenges in STEM.
*Delaware educators who wish to receive clock hour certificates (in DEEDS) for either one or both days of the equity conference should also register in PDMS.
