Beyond the pandemic: a virtual summit on innovation in STEM
Join us May 12-13, 2021 for Beyond the pandemic: a virtual summit on innovation in STEM. The summit is the capstone event of the STEM Meets the Challenge of the Pandemic project. Presenters from 3M, Medtronic, Bolton & Menk and the Minnesota Department of Health will highlight the innovative approaches and new connections that they are using to meet the challenge of the pandemic.
Our speakers will also discuss what they’ve learned during the past 14 months, where they are headed, and how to continue working together to address the STEM needs in our state and beyond. The past year has spurred rapid innovation, collaboration, and a shifting of skill sets and priorities. That leads all of us to the questions of what’s next for STEM education and hiring, and how will we continue to build a diverse and inclusive STEM ecosystem.
The summit will be open to all. Sessions will have particular relevance for:
- STEM educators
- STEM professionals
- STEM undergraduate and graduate students
STEM educators are invited to live stream and use the summit’s content in their classrooms. The Summit will use a web-based service that integrates with Zoom for all sessions, presentations and break-out rooms.
There are two registration options for the summit: a free pass which includes access to all live programs May 12-13 and a full pass ($50) which includes documentation follow-up for education credits (i.e. PDHs, CEUs, etc.) and access to any available program recordings. Not all sessions will be recorded.
