Summit theme: Building Tomorrow Together
The 2024 Ohio STEM Innovation Summit will be held on June 4, 2024 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in the Short North Ballroom. The summit will showcase innovative STEM strategies from teachers and administrators across the state. The theme for this year’s event is “Building Tomorrow Together” and will focus on strengthening Ohio’s STEM education community and building the future of STEM in this state.
The images for this year’s summit invoke both Ohio’s vibrant cities but also the grain silos that store the food from one of the nation’s largest agricultural hubs. The theme recognizes the many smaller towns and suburbs that help house the nation’s 7th largest population.
Just like these graphics, the 2024 Ohio STEM Innovation Summit seeks to recognize and grow every part of Ohio’s STEM community. From classroom teachers to building leaders, to industry partners, and even the students themselves.
How the Ohio STEM Learning Network will embody community at the 2024 summit:
- Sessions built on Ohio’s Quality Model for STEM and STEAM Schools, the community-built document that forms the foundation of STEM in the state, including STEM school designation
- New Leveraging Community session type where presenters articulate a dilemma and leverage the audience to overcome the challenge
- Keynote to be announced soon featuring a national leader in connecting STEM to diverse communities who consulted on an Emmy-winning preschool series, served at the White House, and holds a PhD from Harvard University in Experimental Pathology
- Expanded scope as the event moves to a new, larger venue with increased spots for attendees, presenters, and exhibitors from across the state
