Each year, RIT hosts the PLTW NYS STEM Conference.  We recommend as much participation from your school as possible as this is a great opportunity for state and industry-wide networking, discussing best practices and learning more about PLTW.  The conference location changes each year and offers the latest information about the PLTW program.  This conference can be especially beneficial to those who are new to PLTW or for those who have not been to a recent conference.

There are no costs for the conference other than travel or accommodation expenses for which the schools are responsible.

The 2016 NY STEM Conference is scheduled for Thursday, October 13, 2016 in Rochester, NY at the RIT Inn and Conference Center.  A room block is available for overnight accomodations on October 12.  To make reservations, contact the hotel directly at (585) 359-1800.  A special RIT rate of $94/night is available.

Questions regarding the 2016 NY STEM conference can be directed to Sarah Pillittere,, (585) 475-4744, or Carolyn Malstrom,, (518) 320 - 6909.
