As part of the school district agreement with PLTW, school counselors must attend a conference about the PLTW program. RIT hosts the PLTW NYS STEM Conference each December. The location of this conference changes each year. The one-day event offers the latest information about the PLTW program and allows for a state-wide networking opportunity. All counselors, teachers and administrators are encouraged to attend, especially those who are new to PLTW or for those who have not been to a conference in at least three years.
There are no costs for the conference other than travel or accommodation expenses for which the schools are responsible.
The 2014 NY PLTW STEM Conference was held on December 11, 2014 at Saratoga Springs High School. Presentations can be found here.
