STEMxCon Starts Next Week! #STEMx13

Steve Hargadon and I are running an online STEM conference next week with support from HP and ISTE. I'm thrilled about our keynote speakers which include my former University of Chicago colleague Jeanne Century, Maker's Dale Dougherty, Chor Huat Chua, the principal of an amazing Singaporean school that I visited in May 2012, and my original contact at Google, Cristin Frodella. The entire event is free, and sessions are taking place around the clock to accommodate all time zones. Below is a flyer which you can pass on to others or print out to post in workplace. 

Hope to see you online next week! Call for proposals closes on Friday, September 13th.
