The university’s Center for the Advancement of STEM Education hosted its annual conference, bringing together more than 160 participants from higher education, K-12 and the general public to discuss and learn about education and outreach for the future.
 
“It’s a great opportunity to bring together middle school and high school teachers to learn the technologies and techniques being used so they can bring it back to their schools and classrooms,” said Dr. Jennifer Mendell, assistant professor of biological sciences and co-coordinator of BSU Citylab. “Participants are also able to build connections with other teachers that may help in the future.”
 
One of the highlights of the conference was the opportunity to be a part of diverse workshops that covered many STEM disciplines and represented all of the programs supported by CASE. Professor Mendell, along with Dr. Merideth Krevosky, associate professor and also a coordinator of Citylab, discussed that program, which collaborate with teachers and administrators from partner school districts to develop innovative programs that meet their specific needs.
 
This year’s keynote speaker for the conference Dr. Kenneth Miller, professor of biology and the Royce Family Professor for Teaching Excellence from the department of molecular biology, cell biology and biochemistry at Brown University. Dr. Miller presented a lecture titled, “Evidence, Politics and Reality: Does Science Really Matter in America Today?”
