Despite the current pandemic and social-distancing guidelines, more than 50 teachers, professors and teachers in training attended a half-day conference on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) teaching and learning. The Mercy College Center for STEM Education (MCCSE) hosted their annual “K-12 STEM Teacher Conference” for the first time virtually on October 3, 2020.
Two-thirds of the attendees were Mercy faculty, alumni, or students, including Elementary Education Department Chair Dr. Elena Nitecki and Associate Professor of Childhood Education, Dr. Wendy Mages, and MCCSE co-directors Drs. Amanda Gunning and Meghan Marrero.
