EXSEED 2022 Conference Registration is now closed!

This year we are focusing on STEM experiential learning through a health science lens. Join us for a look at the healthy side of STEM education like the science of healthy living, mental health and resilience, and new techniques and procedures in medical science. Our plenary sessions and workshops are designed for K-12 educators and leaders seeking to share the healthy side of science, technology, engineering, and math with their fellow teachers and students through experiential and project-based learning. This is the place to get inspired, empowered, and rejuvenated.
  • Hands-on, experiential workshops that will strengthen your health-STEM activities
  • Plenary presentations on health-STEM topics and research from subject matter experts
  • Integration of STEM and Project-Based Learning
