Build, Create, and Hack: Bringing STEAM into K-12

The US is facing a crisis in its education system. Our standardized test-based approach is leaving new generations of American students at a disadvantage in a global economy that requires 21st century skills like innovation, curiosity and critical-thinking. The emphasis on science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) and hands-on learning to close the gap is widely documented; join respected educators and program directors on the forefront of the movement as they discuss the challenges, methods and successes of instituting STEAM schools and hands-on learning programs across the US. This panel is moderated by Lindsay Levkoff, the Director of Education at SparkFun Electronics - a Boulder, Colorado-based embedded electronics company with four years of documented STEAM education outreach efforts.
