2020 Robert Noyce Conference
June 17-20, 2020 I Renaissance Montgomery Hotel I Montgomery, AL
Dear Noyce Colleagues,
It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Montgomery, AL for the 2020 Southeastern Regional Robert Noyce Conference: Removing Barriers in STEM Teacher Education. Montgomery was one of the primary sites for the Civil Rights Movement and you will have the opportunity to learn more about this rich history and how it connects to Mathematics and Science education.
Building on the momentum from last year's conference in Mobile, we will continue our exploration of the challenges and potential solutions to the persistent problems of equity in education. This year's conference will continue to have as one of its foci social justice and culturally relevant pedagogy in Mathematics and Science education. We look forward to continuing the established connections and establishing new relationships with those from newly funded projects as we all work to remove barriers in STEM teacher education.
We look forward to hosting this event so that we can all share resources and lessons learned from your Noyce projects, and be inspired by one another. We will have an event filled conference that will surely influence all who attend!
If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact us. A member of the organizing committee will respond to you within 48 hours.
