For the past decade, the iMATHination conference has provided educators from all content areas with innovative teaching strategies, new technologies and hands-on approaches to the teaching and learning of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).  

This year's theme is Making Diverse Learning Real in STEM, encouraging diverse learners to engage in and pursue STEM opportunities.



 STEM Maker Fair: Explore a variety of interactive demonstrations, hands-on activities and do-it-yourself (DIY) exhibitions in a gallery walk environment.

 In-Depth Workshops: Choose three (3) highly interactive sessions focused on math, science and technology with an emphasis on practicality in the classroom.
