Everything is Online: No Travel Required

Participating in an online education conference is easy, meaningful – and fun! You’ll get access to every single session, handout, and breakouts at your convenience.

You can attend online LIVE on July 20th using a single login-link sent to your email on the day of the conference. You’ll be able to chat with presenters and other attendees through the online chat bar. But don’t worry – no one will see you (so you can stay in your PJs if you want!).

But what if you can’t attend live?

No problem! You can watch the entire STEAM conference (or any session you miss) at a time that is easier on your schedule in our exclusive, password-protected archive site. You’ll have access to that for life. So you have complete flexibility to use the conference sessions/materials as you need, when you need.

BOTH options are included in your registration fee.

I’ve been doing this for 20 years so I’m no spring chicken but…by the end of the day I had nine activities, four books I want to buy, three brain break ideas, and three new technologies to investigate. WOW what a wonderful day.
