The Florida Center for Research in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (FCR–STEM) at Florida State University will be host to the 2015 FCR–STEM Conference — Florida’s premier event for K-12 science and math teachers, school administrators and university faculty.

The FCR–STEM Conference, which will take place December 10-12 in Orlando, Florida, creates a high-quality professional development opportunity for hundreds of Florida’s K-12 math and science educators to engage world-class researchers and experts who share the latest developments in STEM education.
