Tennessee STEM Education Research Conference

January 16 & 17, 2020

 The 14th Annual Tennessee STEM Education Research Conference brings together researchers and educators to discuss STEM education studies and how they are applied in K-20 learning environments. The goals of this conference include: 

  • Share methods, data, and current research questions within disciplinary and interdisciplinary STEM contexts
  • Promote discussions between researchers and educators 
  • Encourage local, state and national STEM education collaboration and partnerships
  • Create enhanced teaching methods for STEM topics
  • Produce networking opportunities across stakeholder communities 

This conference will include addresses from national leaders in STEM education research, visual and oral presentations, and informal sessions to support collaborations. We encourage submissions across all STEM education research areas, both traditional and emerging, as well as at any educational level. 

The research conference will take place in the Roaden University Center and Bell Hall. Our TN Tech interactive campus map may be helpful. Below will be additional directions as well as hotel recommendations.
