Winter Online STEAM Conference Now Open for Registration

Twice a year, EdCloset hosts a Winter Online STEAM Conference focused solely on Arts Integration and STEAM.  We pioneered this unique approach to provide professional development in arts integration. Now, we’re officially on our 4th conference – my how time flies!  Today, I’m excited to share with you our Winter Online Connectivity Conference: Making the Shift to STEAM is now open for registration!

There are so many unique benefits to attending Winter Online STEAM Conference:

  • No travel costs
  • The ability to attend from wherever you are located
  • Flexibility to go back and review presentations and exhibitors well after the Winter Online STEAM Conference is over
  • and Professional Development hours

Beyond this, we’re offering a free, mailed TinkerKit. The kit includes over $200 of products, samples and coupons to the first 500 registrants for this Winter Online STEAM Conference.  So you’re actually getting PAID to go to a conference.  When does that ever happen??  I’m giddy with joy about what is going in these TinkerKits this time.  I can’t wait for you to open one!

The other hallmark of our STEAM and Arts Integration conferences is the convenience factor.  You are able to attend whenever and wherever you are on any device.  So if you’re at home on the couch with your laptop, waiting at a hockey practice on your cell phone, or streaming the conference from your computer, you’ll still get the same great Winter Online STEAM  Conferenceexperience.

Can’t make it the day of the conference?  Did your internet connection go out?  That’s okay!  As a busy mom and educator, I prize my weekends and those precious nap hours, and I know that sometimes life doesn’t go as planned.  We archive the entire conference so you can always go back and watch any session you miss whenever it’s convenient for you.

Dedicated to Integration

The BEST reason to attend this Winter Online STEAM Conference is to be surrounded by the thousands of other educators who believe in the power of arts integration and STEAM and who are working to make it happen.  These sessions aren’t lofty, pie-in-the-sky theories.  There are over 15 sessions from educators around the world who are doing this work in classrooms, schools and districts every single day.

So often, we hear from educators that feel isolated or as though they are running into a brick wall when it comes to advocating for STEAM or Arts Integration.  This Winter Online STEAM Conference provides you with the opportunity to connect with others who share your passion and understand your challenges.  It is such a supportive network!

Don’t forget that the EARLY BIRD pricing is only available until November 15 – so register now to save yourself 15% and receive your TinkerKit!

I hope you’ll join us for this winter’s most innovative online Winter Online STEAM  Conference dedicated to integrating the Arts. It wouldn’t be complete without YOU.
