STEAM Educators

You know how crucial STEAM is to help students build a genuine and critical understanding of the world around them. Teaching science, technology, engineering, arts, and math is always at the forefront of your mind. It’s why we created the TCEA Convention & Exposition. We want to connect you with the resources that you need to keep putting your students first.

“The many opportunities for teachers to use innovative methods of teaching in the classroom was simply amazing.”

You know how crucial STEAM is to help students build a genuine and critical understanding of the world around them. Teaching science, technology, engineering, arts, and math is always at the forefront of your mind. It’s why we created the TCEA Convention & Exposition. We want to connect you with the resources that you need to keep putting your students first.

What does your ticket to the TCEA Convention & Exposition get you?

Bring back new techniques for your students. Discover ideas and resources to support learning for your students.

Learn your way. We know how busy you are. It’s why we created interactive and on-demand sessions that allow you to learn at your own pace. You can embrace a full learning experience (and in your PJs — we won’t judge) through March 5. 

Create engaging education. Learn about the latest tools and tech to help educators easily create compelling content. 

Get time back. Your time is invaluable. Why not knock out all of your required CPE hours at once? With over 500 events and experiences, there are over 40 live-event credit hours and over 350 self-paced credits available on-demand for 30 days after the live event!

Improve student outcomes. Find strategies that will really work in your classroom. Take the guesswork out of the equation by learning from your peers what has been successful and what hasn’t.

Make meaningful connections. It’s not a TCEA convention without building unique and lasting relationships. Expand your PLN with morning kickoffs, roundtable discussions, and experiences that will recharge you.

Access the latest in ed tech. You’ll be able to get the most up-to-date solutions from industry experts and vendors in our robust exhibit hall.

Dr. Kate Biberdorf is a chemist, science entertainer, and professor at The University of Texas. Through her theatrical and hands-on approach to teaching, Dr. Biberdorf is breaking down the image of the stereotypical scientist, while reaching students who might otherwise be intimidated by science. Students’ emotional responses, rather than rote memorization of facts, are key to Biberdorf’s dynamic approach to her program, as well as science in general. Her exciting and engaging program leaves audiences with a positive, memorable impression of science — all while diminishing the stigma around women in science. She has appeared on The Today Show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, NBC Nightly News, the Wendy Williams Show, the Rachael Ray Show, and Late Night with Stephen Colbert.
