A Conference for Professional Development, Enrichment, Networking, and Fun for Commonwealth K-12 STEM Educators and Administrators

A Strategic Engagement Legacy.

From 2011- 2019, VMI offered a STEM Education Conference for K-12 educators and their administrators. Each year, we incorporated lessons learned and survey results into the next year's programming. YOU helped us make a difference in STEM education throughout the state of Virginia.

We hosted our last conference in 2019. In response to our surveys, VMI filled the gap of professional development, networking, and best practices until school districts were able to meet their needs on the local level with their own staff, training, and regional or on-site professional development programming.

Thank you, Commonwealth educators, it was an honor to serve you!


What have past attendees said about VMI's STEM Education Conference?

“I like the informal opportunities to talk with people during meals about the sessions, the proximity of the sessions to the main building, the activity during the sessions and the Q&A during presentations.” ~ Paula White
“The price was right, my level of learning was high, there was not a repeat of material from other educational conferences, and the sessions and workshops were varied enough to hold my interest through the entire sessions.” ~ Survey Respondent
“Very worthwhile conference. This is our 2nd year sending a team of teachers, and they all returned with activities and ideas to integrate into science, math and ELA instruction. Thanks!” ~ Survey Respondent
