June 22-24, 2021 EXSEED Online Conference


Call for Presentations for the LLU EXSEED Online Conference this June!

The Loma Linda University EXSEED Online Conference is coming this June, so we are looking for proposals for STEM/STEAM/STREAMS plenary presentations, hands-on/experiential workshops, and poster sessions. In addition, we are eager to have educators share with us specific topics they would like EXSEED to address at this summer’s EXSEED or in the future. Although we may not be able to address them all this summer, but we’ll include as many as we can in the future! Proposals are due by March 30, 2021.

What is EXSEED?

Excellence in STEM Experiential Education (EXSEED) is an innovative and collaborative program designed to enhance integrated Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education in Adventist K-12 education in partnership with K-12 and higher education. The goal of EXSEED is to collaboratively support and empower K-12 educators in teaching the STEM disciplines within a Mission-Focused Learning (MFL) context that emphasizes the arts, spirituality, and service.
