The NY PLTW STEM Conference and NY PLTW Informational Sesssions are a great opportunity for state and industry-wide networking, discussing best practices and learning more about PLTW.  The conference location rotates around the state to best serve our network and can be especially beneficial to those who are new to PLTW or for those who have an exciting PLTW story to share.

There are no costs for the conference other than your travel and accommodation.  Reservations and expenses are the responsibility of the participants and/or their schools.

In 2017, RIT hosted two NY PLTW Informational Sessions.  The first was held in November in Poughkeepsie, NY and the second in December in Rochester, NY.

The 2016 NY STEM Conference was held in October, 2016 in Rochester, NY.  Please view the conference agenda and presentations

Thank you to all of our presenters, students and participants in helping to make these events a success!
