The 27th Annual Joint Conference

Feb. 7-9, 2019.

After careful consideration by the SDCTM/SDSTA joint board, the decision has been made to change the joint SDCTM/SDSTA conference title to SD STEM Ed Conference. STEM is more inclusive for subject areas including math and science, but also engineering, CTE, and computer science. Additionally, STEM professional development has become a priority in the budgets of many districts and departments. Only the name is changing! The format and overall excellence of the annual conference will remain the same. Don’t worry. The quality and variety that you have come to expect will be unchanged. Mark your calendars for Feb. 7-9 for the 27th Annual SD STEM Ed Conference in Huron!
