Global STEM? What is the very minimum, but absolutely “must-have” knowledge for them?

· If you are in STEM – where are we in Global STEM education and where are we going next?
· How to bring Global STEM ® programs to your school and what can you do on a limited budget?
· What you should know about Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence and Big Data and why these are (one of the) “must-have” experiences for educators and students?
· A quick “tutorial” for educators on what NASA and SpaceX are doing and why all educators should know about?
· A brief overview of other innovations and “moonshots” and grand challenges in science and engineering that all educators should know – and why
· STEM Education – a brief summary of mapping to the standards and conducting research and evaluation
