The 2024 South Dakota STEM Education Conference will feature a track specifically designed for elementary and informal educators like those in out-of-school time programs. Speakers will discuss ways to engage students in STEM and how to connect the learning that takes place during the school day with their afterschool experience.
Some of the topics include:
- Tangible curriculum resources you can take home
- Discussions on communication with school districts to obtain best outcomes for students
- A plethora of field trip opportunities presented by education partners across the state
We strongly encourage any afterschool and/or summer program to send staff to this incredible professional development opportunity that can alter the trajectory of the programming your program offers students, in both STEM and beyond.
