VIP K-16 Showcase

2009 USM STEM Symposium proceedings


As part of the University System of Maryland's STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and Competitiveness Initiative, the University System of Maryland hosted a STEM Symposium on Wednesday, April 22, 2009. This Symposium was sponsored by the NSF-funded VIP K-16 Math Science Partnership in collaboration with the University System of Maryland Foundation.

Attended by more than 350 people, the Symposium featured national experts on STEM teaching and learning and STEM teacher production, and highlighted the work of higher education faculty and K-12 teachers who are currently engaged in P-20 STEM work throughout the state of Maryland. The major themes of the Symposium were aligned with the broader goals of the STEM and Competitiveness Initiative: increasing the number of STEM graduates from our institutions, with particular attention to producing more STEM teachers for the State of Maryland. Keynote presentations were made by Dr. P. Uri Treisman of the University of Texas and U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.
