X94: STEM Roundtable: Building Skills for the Future

Lori Harvey, Hitachi High Technologies America

We will explore how to integrate varied resources to have broader, sustainable impacts in STEM education, including bridging K-12 outreach with undergraduate and graduate education, and emphasizing the importance of diversity and inclusion which will lead to a stronger workforce for everyone. In response to education changes in 2020, The HTA Inspire STEM Education Outreach Program has put forth a plan to provide an opportunity to make quality in-person and virtual experiences easily accessible to teachers as they create the classrooms of tomorrow now. The program is continuing its work with local, national, and international partners to provide flexible access to easy to use content and technology that can be used in the following learning scenarios: Brick to Click Learning, Click to Brick Learning , Blended Learning and Online Learning.

Session is open to all — no separate registration fee required.


Participants are welcome from the following areas: Academia, Education, all levels of Government, Business/Industry, and change leaders within Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math sectors.
