Conference Details

STEM students from around the world come together for several days of interactive learning and sessions facing STEM students today and tomorrow.

This is usually an informal but highly informative group of sessions where information is shared much more openly than anywhere else. Network with STEM student peers and collaborate to solve similar problems, regardless of geographic location.

Why Should Your Students Attend the Conference?

Students at previous Student Research Conferences have toured New York City and conducted research at college labs.

The NCSSS mission is to advance STEM education by providing professional development and networking opportunities for educators and learning experiences for students; to serve as a national resource for STEM schools and programs in partnership with educational, corporate, and international organizations; and to inform policymakers on STEM education.

The annual Student Research Conference provides an opportunity for students in STEM schools to come together and collaborate on learning. Participating in the Student Research Conference gives students the opportunity to present their original research and get hands-on experience with STEM technologies. 

There is no other conference like this one for students in STEM secondary schools.

Who Should Attend the Conference?

The Student Research Conference is meant for students in their sophomore, junior or senior years.
