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 July 19 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 education 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.

Hear from previous attendees

Don’t just take our word for it.  See how this conference has positively impacted teachers just like you.

“This conference is such a wealth of applicable strategies. I found something to put into my everyday routine immediately. In confession, I was only going to “play” the conference and watch it later. I could not tear myself away as I waited to see what magic the next presenter was going to unveil. I have already shared three ideas with colleagues too! Thanks for the wonderment of it all!”

– PAMELA BRENNAN

“I am in awe at the amount of information that I receive at this conference. This conference is above and beyond most conferences that I have to go to and provide me with so many resources. Thank you so much!”

– SHELLY COOPER

“I have been participating in Education Closet’s Online STEAM Conferences for at least 3 years. The Winter 2018 STEAM Conference was by far the best offered. The content presented was rigorous, meaningful, practical, thought provoking, and this list could very well continue! In my roll as the NYSATA STEAM co-Chair I have and continue to recommend Education Closet as a leader on STEAM Education.”

– KATHLEEN BUSHEK

“The Arts Integration Conference was more than I expected. The presenters were excellent. The topics were timely. I will be utilizing more than a few of the activities within the next week. I highly recommend this conference.”

– CELESTE GLASGOW

“I have to say that this conference is one of the best conferences I have ever been to and it was well worth the time and effort to attend.”

– JEREMY TYSON JARVI

“This was a very inspirational conference for me. It was my first experience with STEAM as I am interested in implementing it into our curriculum. As each speaker was presenting, I had so many ideas racing through my head on how I could incorporate these fantastic learning opportunities for my elementary students.”

– JULIA SINGLETON

HOW DO WE GET TO 10 PD HOURS?

You might be wondering how we can provide a 10 hour PD certificate when the live day event is only 6 hours long.  This conference also includes access to over 3 hours of bonus video sessions in the on-demand site.  And we provide 1 hour to go through all of the handouts, lessons and templates that are provided by all of the presenters.  That brings us to a total of 10 hours for the entirety of the event.

Also – just in case you’re curious – your login to both the live day platform and the on-demand site are logged through your individual IP address.  That way, in case anyone needs verification of the time you attended, we can easily submit that for you.

It’s Time.

You deserve this kind of innovative learning experience. Join 1500+ other educators from around the world from the comfort of your home.
