About this conference

As exciting advancements push STEM innovations to new heights, the national challenge of sparking interest in STEM fields from a young age takes on greater urgency. We're preparing students for jobs that don't yet exist, and for career paths we often cannot yet fully imagine.

On December 9, we'll gather a wide range of prominent STEM practitioners and experts in policy, technology, and education. Through case studies and engaging interviews, our panelists will share both the setbacks and successes they have experienced, highlight cutting-edge advancements across their fields, and offer students a firsthand look into what tomorrow's STEM careers may look like-and the impact they could have on the world.

With thanks to our Underwriter, Siemens Foundation, we'll meet the next generation of inventors and innovators at the event where the winners of the 2014 Siemens Competition will be announced.
