Attend the 7th Annual Minnesota Stem Network Conference
8 a.m – 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 5, 2016
St. Paul, Minnesota

The Minnesota STEM Network convenes its 7th annual conference with a focus on computational thinking and its influential role in developing students’ 21st century skills, engaging students from a variety of backgrounds in STEM, and preparing students for tomorrow’s STEM workforce.

Computational thinking is a problem-solving process that includes analyzing data, generating models, creating simulations, and formulating problems in a way that applies computing to achieve effective solutions.  This conference features active learning strategies that incorporate coding and problem-solving using computational thinking.

The conference strands are:

  • decoding the digital terrain
  • addressing the digital divide, and 
  • integrating computer science with other STEM and non-STEM curricula
