What is the Arts Integration and STEAM Online Conference?

Welcome to the largest arts integration and STEAM conference for educators.  Each event, classroom and arts teachers connect for a crazy-good day of learning. And it’s all online – so it’s flexible, affordable and practical, too.

Arts integration and STEAM conference with ISTE and ASCD conference partners

Because you teach it ALL.

You don’t teach just one thing.  You teach it ALL.  Science, Art, Math, Social Skills, Problem-Solving – everything.  So how about some professional development that helps you do all.the.things?

This conference helps you make connections and take action.  No boring, good-in-theory PD here!  Need lessons, strategies, or how-to’s for moving from STEM to STEAM? Ideas you can use tomorrow? Grab a seat on the sofa – you’re in the right place.

What’s included in your registration?

Lifetime on-demand access is included with your registration and you’ll receive 10 PD hours. Join over 1,500 other educators from around the globe so you, too, can create your dream STEAM classroom, school or district.

Who is this conference for?

Whether you are new to arts integration and STEAM or already have an exciting makerspace, this K-12 teaching conference can support your goals.  Here’s who we serve:

Each session is carefully selected for the most innovative STEAM techniques, lessons, models and practical solutions working in schools right now.

How it Works

Know how most conferences make you pick from a long list of sessions? And then you have to sit through yet *another* powerpoint presentation. If you’re lucky, you walk away with 1 or 2 ideas you can actually use.

This conference isn’t like that.

This is a 1-day online event.  You get access to all the sessions, live-streamed to a web-based platform.  And they’re all filled with golden nugget ideas for your classroom.

Log on, watch and go. You can even rewatch if you want – you’ll have lifetime access to everything.

“Excellent conference — one of the most informative and energizing I have ever attended. The online format is perfect for a busy teacher. Definitely appreciated the extraordinary creativity, professional approach and classroom-ready ideas from each presenter. Full STEAM ahead!”

Everything is Online: No Travel Required

Participating in an online teaching 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 February 3rd 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.
