The symposium is a three-day (June 14-16, 2017) STEM workshop for teachers and administrators from K-12 institutions, college and university professors of pre-service teachers, and community and business leaders who want to support high-quality STEM education in their communities with a focus on issues of sustainability and the engagement of mathematics and science teachers and faculty in the development of joint lessons. The aim is to enable participants to share practices and ideas, which bring mathematics into science classes and vice versa, which will result in a larger and more effective and especially diverse STEM workforce. It is held in parallel with the STEM Institutes, which hosts week-long STEM courses for over 750 elementary and middle school students.
