2017 TEEAP STEM Conference!
The TEEAP conference planning team is getting ready for the Annual TEEAP STEM Conference. Details are coming together and we are excited to share them with you. The 2017 Conference is being held in the same location as last year - Lancaster IU 13 Conference Center, at the Burle Industrial Park, 1020 New Holland Ave., Lancaster, PA - on October 26-27, 2017.
Once again, teachers and schools are facing a change of focus in education due to the new Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). This is why TEEAP has selected “Change Again: ESSA and Career Readiness” as the theme of this year’s conference. Technology and engineering teachers cannot be left behind when it comes to this change. We need to understand this new law so we can align and promote our programs, as well as play a vital role in preparing students for college and their careers.
The TEEAP STEM Conference is an opportunity for anyone involved in technology and engineering education, STEM, and preparing students for college and career readiness to come together and learn, share, and renew their enthusiasm for teaching.
Pre-Registration is now open. The lower pre-registration rate will be valid until October 13th. As usual there will be on-site registration, but on-site registration prices are higher and will not include an on-site lunch as part of your registration this year. More information can be found on our STEM Conference page.

Recruiting the Next Generation of Technology & Engineering Educators!
It is no secret that we have a shortage of Technology & Engineering Education teachers in Pennsylvania and even beyond the boundaries of our great Commonwealth. So what are we going to do about it? Invite the next generation to enroll to become our colleagues in teaching the T & E of STEM!

The ITEEA's 80th Annual Conference will be held In Atlanta, Georgia! This year's theme will be "Building Bridges Within The STEM Community and Beyond." Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) is very much a �buzzword� on today�s educational landscape. Every teacher, school, district, and state has its own version of what STEM means as well as how to help students engage in experiences that will prepare them for the 21st Century. Technology and Engineering is the foundation for making these experiences meaningful through integrative STEM education. Building bridges helps everyone to understand the important role technology and engineering contributes to STEM education.��
This conference is an opportunity to recognize and honor the accomplishments of our colleagues and best-practice programs. Additionally, it provides professional development and networking opportunities, as well as opportunity to renew old friendships and create new friendships. For more information, click here.
