RiSE Center Conference on STEM Education and Related Research
Wells Conference Center, University of Maine, Orono
June 24–25, 2024 (Monday–Tuesday)
This two-day conference brings together researchers and PreK-16+ educators to share research findings and explore new technologies, theories, approaches and challenges to teaching and learning in the STEM disciplines: science, technology, mathematics and engineering.
Research-based strategies can enhance teaching, learning, and inclusion in STEM classrooms. At this conference we aim to highlight current research and tested strategies to help educators use these in their classrooms from early elementary through graduate school.
