2020 Robert Noyce Conference - Delayed to Summer 2021

Southeastern Regional Robert Noyce Conference


Due to COVID-19, the Southeastern Noyce Conference Organizing Committee has made the difficult decision to delay the conference to mid-June 2021. 


Dear Southeast Regional Noyce Family,

We want to stay connected to you all over the summer since we will not have a physical conference. To that end, we are planning Terrific Thursdays where you can connect with each other over the summer while engaging in some PD and other presentations that may assist you as you begin planning for the upcoming school year.

This summer, teachers all across the nation are trying to envision what the upcoming school year will look like. While there are many uncertainties, one thing remains unchanged: new teachers want advice on how to plan relevant lessons in a variety of differentiated and engaging ways. 

We hope you and your scholars and teachers will join us over the course of four Thursdays this summer as we dive into professional development opportunities led by experts in the field.
