It all starts with a thought, a spark of innovation, or a wicked cool idea. Inspiring today's students to integrate design and creativity - the guiding power of the arts - with science, technology and engineering, is the goal of the annual WNY STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math) Conference. 
Educators and STEAM professionals are invited submit proposals to present a 50-minute workshop at this annual gathering to be held Monday, Aug. 6, on the Daemen College campus. Successful workshops will address arts integration, include real world connections, and emphasize creativity and design. Visit www.edcowny.org/steam-conference-call-for-presenters for details and selection criteria.
The WNY STEAM Conference brings educators from Western New York together to learn about and discuss STEAM education in K-12 private, independent, charter and public schools. This year's theme - Building Buffalo and Beyond - takes on many meanings, from the built environment to products that require concepts, designs, and prototypes which are all connected by the fabric of STEAM. 
The deadline to submit a workshop proposal is Feb. 28. Successful applicants will be notified by April 2. Proposals are accepted online only at www.surveymonkey.com/r/WNYSTEAM18.
The WNY STEAM Conference was launched five years ago by educators looking for a venue to share ideas that inspire learning in students and teachers alike. It has grown into a premier education event that brings together many different people from both the education and industry realms who are committed to the success of all students.
