The 7th Annual Conference on Integrated Computing and STEM Education provides a forum for K–14 STEM teachers, researchers, educators, policy makers and industrial partners to share their experiences, best practices, and ideas, and thereby influence the future direction of integrated computing and STEM education.

The theme of this year’s conference is Learning Through Doing: Join the Maker Revolution, with an emphasis  on computing, robotics, Raspberry Pi, and Arduino for hands-on learning math/science and maker movement. Integrate coding, making, and robotics into core academics to achieve 100% math proficiency for your students.

We have more than 160 registered participants attending the conference.
