STEMgrants.com started the new year by announcing that it will host the first national conference dedicated exclusively to the topic of STEM grants on March 1st through March 4, 2011. The STEM Grants Virtual Conference is an initiative designed to inspire, inform, and educate those involved in STEM education about how to (a) find funding opportunities (b) write proposals and (c) win awards. This four day event features a different keynote speaker each morning, including:
* Astronaut Dr. Winston Scott – Dean, College of Aeronautics at Florida Tech
* Dr. Ioannis Miaoulis – President, Boston Museum of Science
* Darlene Cavalier – Founder ScienceCheerleader.com and ScienceforCitizens.net
* Dr. Douglas Arion – President Galileoscope LLC
The keynote presentations will be followed by detailed “how-to” presentations during the remainder of the day. In total there are 19 different presentations planned for this event. Attendees can participate from the convenience of their school, university, non-profit organization, or even their home.
Each presentation features:
* Live audio/video of the presenter
* Live simultaneous PowerPoint Presentations
* Ability to ask questions and get “real time” answers
* Ability to view recorded versions at later times/dates
The cost for registration is only $99 per person which provides access to ALL sessions for ALL 4 days. This represents the fraction of the typical costs associated with other conferences which can quickly add up to a $1,000 when factoring in registration, hotel, airfare, car rental, meals, etc.
