Keynote

Our keynote speaker, Rachel Jameton is the director for the Center for Teaching and Learning at Lewis-Clark State College. She has a B.A. in chemistry at Franklin and Marshall College and doctoral degree in organic chemistry at the University of Utah. With experience directing science camps, after school programming, and outreach activities, as well as experience in science curriculum design and teaching college students she will be discussing ways to encourage students of all ages to express their ideas and foster creative potential.

Lightning Talks

These short 5-10 minute presentations will be used to highlight current projects in the area relating to STEAM education. Meant to inform the audience about current projects, we hope the audience will walk away having learned something new about STEAM efforts on the Palouse.

Workshops

These 1 hour workshops are intended to give attendees some tools to incorporate into their own STEAM projects. Our presenters range from members of local STEAM organizations to professors at Washington State University.
