It was exciting news, to be asked to present at conference dedicated to STEM education.  Math Research alums Nicholas Thyr and Daniel Bergerson were joined by newcomer Christopher Walker on an August day to present at the 2013 Colloquium on P-12 STEM Education at the University of Minnesota on August 5-6, 2013.  Participants found the session inspiring and informative.  

It also marked the debut of the math research Venn diagram, the result of student discussions arising from having presented at STEM conferences, service-learning conferences, and social justice conferences, and the unique challenges and opportunities offered by each.

Did you know:  The acronym STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) came from the National Science Foundation.  In their internal conversations they were referring to the new initiative as SMET, but realizing the public would misinterpret it, they changed it to STEM.  Should have been METS if you ask me!
