STEAM Educators:

You grow our future problem solvers. 

For you, it’s all about getting students to apply skills to solve real-world problems with a hands-on approach. 

You work hard to help them build a genuine and critical understanding of the world around them. You recognize the importance of cultivating creativity, developing problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, and promoting active learning using an interdisciplinary approach. It’s why you’re a STEAM educator! 

At convention, we want to provide you with the space to invest in you and your interests in STEAM. Take time to explore, discover, and get excited about cutting-edge ed tech trends, pedagogical tools, and practical resources that align with your goals and objectives…and that will get you great results with your students.

“I was able to make contact with other session attendees afterward to bounce ideas off of each other. In the current climate, to be able to connect with others in this way, was a gift.”  -Aimee

You Pick Your Sessions

Learning. Lots of it.

With hundreds of sessions to choose from, you’ll expand your learning and grow your expertise. It’s not all about quantity, though. Quality matters! That’s why we provide research-based, data-driven sessions led by experts in the field. Attend sessions. Implement solutions. Get results. And you choose which sessions to attend based on your goals and interests.

Here are just a few of the many sessions specifically designed for STEM and STEAM educators:

  • Lasers and Filament: 3D Printing Projects
  • Being There: Fabulous Free Virtual Field Trips for Science (and Other) Classrooms – Curriculum, Too!
  • STEM-Palooza
  • Can’t get the Math to Stick? Virtual Manipulatives Will Do the Trick
  • What is FIRST Robotics and How Can I start a Team?
  • Social Studies and STEAM: Let’s Do It!

Whether you are attending all four days of the convention or packing as much learning as possible into just a few, your time at the 2022 TCEA Convention & Exposition will be filled with innovative presentations, incredible opportunities for connection, and valuable experiences. Plus, this year we are offering two distinct online session packages focusing on Bridging the Learning Gap and Social-Emotional Learning that you can watch through March 11.

Four Days of Inspiration

Speakers that deliver.

It’s what we’re known for. Not only will you leave with ideas and the resources to implement them in your classroom tomorrow, you’ll also be engaged, energized, and transformed by the diverse speakers featured every single day. Past speakers have included groundbreakers like Mae Jemison and Marlee Martin, along with the ever-so-comical Gerry Brooks. Curious to know who will inspire you this year? Go ahead. Take a look at some speakers who will, no doubt, uplift you and encourage you in your work. Follow them on Twitter to get your excitement started early!
