Education Week offers you a big-picture look at how states, districts, and schools can overcome the obstacles that prevent more students from succeeding in STEM as they progress through school.

In this virtual event, Education Week journalists and guests will staff online “discussion” rooms on a host of topics, including the challenge of providing strong early STEM experiences, controversies over high school math tracking, and the ongoing challenge of implementing new science standards.

Join them on Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2018, from 1 to 3 p.m. ET, for a deep dive into STEM education in your schools. This Online Summit provides you a unique opportunity to directly interact with reporters and STEM practitioners and experts and to watch a livestreamed series of interviews after the chat to synthesize core themes.
