Connect. Ignite. Share.

TELUS Spark in Calgary, Alberta
February 26 & 27, 2020

Join us on February 26 & 27, 2020 in Calgary at TELUS Spark for two full days of professional development and networking opportunites.


Your registration will include, light breakfast and lunch both days, and access to all sessions. 

The Science and Technology Awareness Network is excited to announce its first Conference in Alberta! Join our delegates in discussing the future of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics across Canada and how the Arts community can be leveraged to improve Science Outreach and Literacy. 


Our presenters and panelists will be discussing the future of STEAM; how can we push our boundaries to explore new facets of science outreach across our nation? We hope to delve into topics such as encouraging the next generation of STEAM leaders to find their voice, how to bring Art and Design into STEM, the future of Artificial Intelligence, and more. 


This is an unparalleled opportunity to connect with your STEAM peers, ignite your passions, and share a vision for the future.
