Science Foundation Arizona (SFAz) provides opportunities to help schools utilize STEM activities to improve student achievement and better prepare students for college and careers. One such opportunity is in the support and networking of out-of-school STEM Clubs. Over the past three years, SFAz has assisted in the creation of STEM Clubs in schools throughout the state. This has included developing an online STEM Club Guide, coordinating the two Annual Arizona STEM Club Conferences, and providing seed funding for the creation/expansion of over 200 STEM Clubs across the state. To continue this process, we are hosting the 3rd Annual Arizona STEM Club Conference at the Memorial Union at Arizona State University in Tempe on Monday June 8, 2015 from 8:30am - 4pm.

 

This free conference is open to all public schools in Arizona with whole district participation encouraged. Each interested school may send two representatives (administrators and/or teachers) to this event, where they will:

  • Choose from breakout sessions on topics such as Project Based Learning, Increasing STEM Interest in Girls and Minorities, STEM and the Arts, and many more,
  • Learn from existing STEM Clubs how and why they started their clubs, how these clubs operate, and what their benefits and challenges have been,
  • Explore products and activities ranging from robotics to distance learning activities suited for incorporating STEM into schools both in clubs and into classrooms.

 

Cost of Event is Free to Educators (2 per school) as space allows.

Private donations fund our operating budget, education and research efforts.
