Real STEM. Real Life.

JASON National Educators' Virtual Conference

July 7-8, 2021

This year’s theme: Real STEM. Real Life. celebrates our mission and the work our educators do everyday to connect students to real-world STEM phenomena and help them recognize the relevance of STEM in their lives. Participants will be able to choose from a variety of keynote events and breakout sessions including virtual “field trips”, panels and sharing of best practices – up to five sessions each day.  Featured guests include experts from NASA, UScellular, The Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS), The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI), and many more STEM professionals.

CALL FOR PRESENTERS – Share your expertise!

Consider sharing your expertise and best practices in our 25 minute breakout sessions that highlight how educators and students are connecting with real-world STEM through JASON and what programs, tools, and strategies you have been using to do it.
