Schenectady Section Call for Volunteers – STEAM Conference in November

Fall 2019 STEAM Conference:

Our section is looking for volunteers for a November STEAM Conference that Questar III BOCES will be hosting in conjunction with Capital Region BOCES and WSHWE BOCES.  The request is for STEAM professionals from a variety of backgrounds to partner with educators to create and present lesson plans based on STEAM-industry practices that teachers can incorporate into their own curriculum.  Please see the information below as well as referenced flyers for more information.

  • These documents highlight the STEAM event that Questar III BOCES will be co-hosting in November:
  • In addition to having Clarkson University’s Tony Collins being our keynote speaker for this event, educators from over 70 school districts around the region will be invited to attend these presentations and learn about these lesson plans
  • Each teacher attending will leave the conference with two completed lesson plans on thumb drives from the workshops they attend to introduce in their classroom

If you have an interest in volunteering several hours of your time over the coming months please reach out to either Colin McDonough or James Church with your contact information and your professional field:
