We will not have a conference in the 2022-23 school year because of timing and facility availability. The shift to holding the conference in the fall is to make the content of greater use to teachers.

The conference theme for 2023 provides opportunities to highlight and examine STEM education complementing the common themes of improving academic performance and encouraging students to pursue STEM-related fields and careers. Through innovative STEM education, educators can enhance student creativity, collaboration, and communication skills while advancing their science and math knowledge and providing the potential to transform lives, re-imagine education, and respond to some of the world’s most complex issues at local and global levels. 
We encourage and welcome you to share your teaching ideas by being part of Interface 2023: Creating a Future with Innovative STEM Skills. All educators who are interested in mathematics and science are encouraged to attend Interface. The event allows practitioners to network and share best practices in their field.
