National STEM Education Research Summit

The second National STEM Education Research Summit will be held at NC State University’s Friday Institute for Educational Innovation in Raleigh, North Carolina, on October 10, 2019. This is the second National STEM Education Research Summit. The first one was held at Purdue University in 2017.

The research base in STEM education has continued to evolve, and our new federal STEM strategic plan “Charting a Course for Success: America’s Strategy for STEM Education” was released in December 2018. Additionally, the inaugural Handbook of Research on STEM Education (Routledge, 2020) will be released next year.

It is a pivotal time for STEM education research. This national gathering will serve as a forum for those engaged in this work to come together and share their collective knowledge with other STEM researchers and policymakers. We hope that you will choose to be a part of this important convening at NC State University sponsored by the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation.

The summit will include research focused on the integration of STEM disciplines. Therefore, we are seeking proposals of implementations of STEM education approaches, including two or more of the STEM disciplines. STEM schools, STEM programs, STEM coursework, STEM policy, STEM professional development, STEM apprenticeships, and state/federal level STEM investments as context for research are all examples of possible topics for the summit. We are also interested in research that spans K-12 as well as higher education.

The registration fee for the summit is $275.00 per person. This includes food (breakfast, lunch and snack provided) as well as conference program and parking accommodations.

The National STEM Education Research summit will be held at the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation on NC State University’s Centennial Campus.

The closest airport to the Friday Institute is Raleigh-Durham International Airport.
