STAN 2021: #STANdTogether

Virtual Conference • February 23-25, 2021

Join us in February 2021 over three days of professional development and networking opportunities.

The Science and Technology Awareness Network is excited to announce its first virtual Conference! Join our delegates online

to network and recharge. We aim to adopt a lens of hope and collaboration, to highlight the resiliency of our members in the face of adversity.

The goals of the Conference are to connect with your peers, gain mutual insights and compassion, and share a vision for the future. We hope new partnerships will emerge as we #STANdtogether through these challenging times. 

We hope to discuss our community's spirit of perseverance and adaptability in the face of a global shift. We hope to delve into topics such as improving all lives through STEAM, adapting to virtual-based business models in STEM and education, and best platforms and tools to use when working from home, among others. 


This is a great opportunity to connect with your STEAM peers, learn from each other, and form partnerships.
