2014 NCEA New Directions STREAM Symposium

Date: Sunday, June 22, 2014 to Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Category: Conference

One of the first and most critical components of STEM education is the interactive and cross-curricular content. This allows students of all ages to understand the relationship between the "core" subjects they study as well as religion and the arts.  By incorporating these additional content areas, STEM education is elevated to STREAM and is central to the continued success of Catholic education.

While we encourage schools to commit to participating in a two-year NCEA New Directions STREAM initiative with the benefits of networking and collaboration, this is NOT a prerequisite for registering for the STREAM Symposium. The STREAM experience is a teaching, sharing, and learning opportunity that we truly urge you not to miss. STREAM is the acronym for the integration of science, technology, religion, engineering, art, and mathematics curricula within the classroom. Nationally renowned speakers, master classes, and interactive sessions on robotics, nanotechnology, and the use of 3D printers are just a sampling of sessions during two and one-half exciting days on the campus of the University of Dayton being planned for you!


  • Educators will be able to initiate a STREAM program at their local elementary or high school or in their diocese which integrates science, technology, religion, engineering, the arts, and math contents across the curriculum.
  • Schools which currently have developed a STEM or STEAM program will be able to enrich their program by integrating the religion and arts content into their program.
  • Schools will establish a network of support through NCEA and their cohort of Symposium schools throughout the two year initiative.

Graduate Credit

The University of Dayton is offering graduate credit for those STREAM Symposium participants who are interested. The cost for each credit hour is $175.00. Those participating will be required to write a paper based on the sessions attended and how those sessions apply to their professional work. Additional information regarding the number of graduate credits that may be earned, and the requirements for these credits will be available at the STREAM Symposium upon check-in.


  • Elementary and Secondary educators and administrators.
