The 2018 NE-ASTE program calls for us to reflect upon the importance of culture, diversity, and equity in STEM education. As educators, we recognize that students bring their own prior experiences and cultural capital to bear in our nation’s classrooms every day. This diversity fills classrooms with stories that are valued in their home lives, but, at times, are overlooked in schools. Teachers and researchers alike are called upon to share research and practices that attempt to break the barriers of inequity in STEM education so that together we are part of the solution.
Join us in Burlington, VT on October 11-13, 2018
