Welcome to Mini Conference 2016 website!
The CREATE for STEM Institute wheld its 5th annual mini-conference on Friday, February 26, 2016 from 1:00 - 6:00 p.m. at the MSU Union, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI. This year over 120 faculty, postdocs, graduate students, teachers, administrators, and other educational leaders across four colleges gathered to share and discuss their research to promote the teaching and learning of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in grades K through 16.
Our intent was for the conference to:
- Fuel discussion about efforts to improve K-16 teaching and learning of STEM,
- Allow researchers and collaborators to share challenges and generate new ideas, and
- Accelerate interdisciplinary collaborations.
The schedule included two poster sessions separated by a keynote presentation and plenary discussion. This year our keynote speaker was James Pellegrino, Co-Director of Learning Sciences Research Institute, Liberal Arts and Sciences Distinguished Professor, and Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of Illinois.

This annual conference is free, but registration is required.
