About the Summit
Government, industry, education leaders and STEM advocates are invited to join the First Integrated STEM Leadership Summit in Asia will take place on November 21-24, 2019 at the Shangri-La Mactan Resort and Spa in Cebu, Philippines.
Developing a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) literate citizenry that can synergize their skills with the needs of both local and global communities is vital if we are to navigate through a rapidly changing world.
Co-organized by US-based STEM Leadership Alliance (SLA), the First Integrated STEM Summit in Asia emphasizes the imperative for shared efforts among diverse sectors and provides a platform for cross-sectoral dialogue and collaboration among government, academe, industry, and community.
SLA is a broad coalition of industry leaders, educators, and non-profit organizations committed to helping schools and industries to work together, and create a culture of innovation to address societal problems.
The formation of the Alliance was led in the United States by the five major organizations responsible for guiding learning standards and supporting teacher development in each of the STEM fields. These include the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), the National Council of Teachers of Math (NCTM), the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA). The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), and the American Association for Engineering Education (ASEE).
All of these groups are partners and shareholders in providing a unified voice in which businesses, schools, and parents can align their needs and interests.
Create a platform for government, industry, academe, and the larger community to share current situations and existing initiatives focused on Integrated STEM, and to prepare today’s students to be part of the workforce of the future.
Develop a community of Integrated STEM Leaders that connects pK-12 to real-world applications, shifting from an interdisciplinary to a multidisciplinary to a trans-disciplinary approach.
Create an evidence-based framework of the roles of each shareholders.
Cultivate Integrated STEM Leaders who become the champions and advocates for Integrated STEM in their region.
